The York Theatre Company to Present Diane Love & Jay Nickerson in LOVE ONLINE at the Laurie Beechman Theatre

The York Theatre Company will present a limited engagement of Love Online, a cabaret conceived and scripted by Diane Love, featuring songs from Broadway to Country. Love Online has two performances on Wednesday October 19 and November 2. All performances are at 7PM with doors opening at 6PM at the Laurie Beechman Theatre (407 West 42nd Street, on the corner of 9th Avenue).

LOVE ONLINE is a cabaret featuring Diane Love and Jay Nickerson as two aging singles expressing their feelings, hopes, and ultimately love - in song and conversation. Her character has recently ventured into the world of online dating, leading her to a jaded bachelor, just about ready to throw in the towel. Accompanied by Gerry Dieffenbach on the piano, the thirty songs performed run the gamut from Broadway to Country, with many duets juxtaposing unlikely musical combinations. Love Online features the music of Stephen Sondheim, George and Ira Gershwin, Burt Bacharach, Duke Ellington, Patsy Cline, Kander & Ebb, Willie Nelson, and many others. Inspired by friends and acquaintances who found love online, Diane Love has woven songs from the American songbook with country ballads in order to bring her characters to life.

Join The York for the premiere of Love Online on Wednesday October 19th, and the subsequent performance on Wednesday November 2nd. Performers Diane Love and Jay Nickerson, and music director Gerry Dieffenbach, have previously collaborated on another of Love's original cabarets, Marriage, The Ups and Downs in Song. The trio has reunited to present Love Online, joined by director Joseph Hayward.

Love Online will run following the performance schedule: Wednesday October 19 and November 2 at 7PM, with doors opening at 6PM.
