LOVE FOR SALE Extended Through March 3 at Soho Playhouse
Due to sold-out houses, Titled Productions is pleased to announce the extension of LOVE FOR SALE, a 1930's cabaret-play celebrating the music of Kurt Weill & his contemporaries, like Cole Porter & Friedrich Hollaender. Featuring OffWestEnd Award-nominee Kelly Burke & Broadway Music Director Charlie Alterman (Pippin, Next to Normal), this limited Off-Broadway run at Soho Playhouse which began previews on January 12 & opened on January 19 will extend its run through March 3, 2017. LOVE FOR SALE is directed by Robert F. Gross.
LOVE FOR SALE was originally developed as a site-specific project for Wilton's Music Hall, the oldest surviving music hall in the UK, eventually moving to London's premiere cabaret venue, the St. James Studio & then to the Edinburgh Fringe, where it played to rave reviews. Following sell-out performances in London & Edinburgh, LOVE FOR SALE makes its US debut.
Director Robert F. Gross commented that "I am thrilled to hear that Love for Sale, that darkly romantic fantasia on the classic songs of dangerous era, has struck a responsive chord in 2017 Manhattan. Its songs continue to delight and move . . .they are inexhaustible . . .
