Georgia Ensemble Presents I LOVED, I LOST, I ATE SPAGHETTI
Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), the North Fulton professional theatre company will produce the one-woman show, I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti for their late Fall production at their home in the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. Running October 25th through November 11th, 2018, the show stars Atlanta's own "Souper Jenny", Jenny Levison, and will be directed by Synchronicity Theatre Artistic Director Rachel May.
About The Show
Based on Giulia Melucci's 2009 book I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti: A Memoir of Good Food and Bad Boyfriends, the show had its premiere at TheaterWorks in Hartford in 2012, quickly becoming one of their highest grossing productions. A crowd favorite wherever it plays, this saucy, one-woman show details the trials and tribulations of Giulia, a single New Yorker navigating the minefield that is the New York dating scene. Throughout the production, she serves a complete Italian dinner, highlighted by spaghetti made from scratch right on stage.
This romantic comedy featuring bad romance stories told by Giulia and live, on-stage cooking, also allows for eight audience members to sit on stage and indulge in the freshly made food as the production progresses.
Casting the show was easy according to Producing Artistic Director Anita Allen-Farley who said, "Right from the start, I knew that if I was going to choose this play for the 26th season, that Jenny Levison was the perfect and only choice. I'm so glad to be working with her again."
An actress, public speaker, and mom, Jenny Levison is probably best known around Atlanta as founder and owner of the ever popular "Souper Jenny" restaurants. She has her fifth store on the way in Roswell, due to open late fall. Levison last appeared on the GET stage in the runaway hit Calendar Girls, still one of GET's most-loved productions in its 25-year history.
