Love and Yogurt is a tale of love, business and contemporary politics. Think Shark Tank meets immigration. It's the story of Emma, a young entrepreneur, and Javier, a former journalist from Colombia, who is seeking asylum in the U.S. and works at Rolling Fields, a leading chain of natural food stores, to make ends meet. Emma is the founder of "Bubby's," a line of organic kefir. In order to attract investors and wider distribution, she must get it into the trend-setting
Rolling Fields and then demonstrate that it’s a hit with customers. Awaiting the disposition of his asylum case, Javier pines for his homeland but knows that it is unsafe to return. With Emma’s arrival, his life will once again be turned upside down. They will forge a bond that is as powerful as it is surprising - and for which Javier will end up risking it all.

October 19-27, 2019: Performances
EMMA ROSE , 20-35, an entrepreneur and founder of "Bubby's” - a line of organic kefir, smart, vivacious, ambitious, an idealist and romantic with an artsy side, her belief in people's fundamental goodness can render her vulnerable to those whose intentions are less than honorable. Versatile Soprano who also sings pop, rock, and folk
JAVIER DEL RIO , 32, a Colombian immigrant and former journalist working at Rolling Fields grocery store, speaks Spanish, well educated and charismatic, beneath his controlled exterior lies passion and conviction. High Baritone/Baritenor A2-A4 Sweet/Lyrical
BRAD PRICE , 40-50, loud, obnoxious, self-impressed store manager who thinks nothing of leveraging his power to obtain personal favors, strong and intimidating, a bully, sucking up to his superiors while often abusing those below him on the organizational chart. Sings in the ensemble/Any Range
BRITNEY HOLLIS , 30-35, successful entrepreneur, motivated, competitive, tough, can intimidate or charm, street smart, sometimes ruthless, for her--the ends justify the means. Mezzo belter A3-B4
TYLER LYNCH , 25-30, an ambitious investment banker, wears his entitlement with pride, conspicuously self-confident, a narcissist and a braggart, with all-American good looks and money to burn he believes himself to be irresistible to women. Light tenor G3-G4
CARLITA FUENTES , 25-35, a Dominican lesbian from the Bronx, loud, opinionated, smart, direct, fiercely loyal and loving to her friends but an implacable foe to evil-doers, a keen judge of character and will unflinchingly speak truth to power, works at Rolling Fields grocery store. Alto E3-C5
BILL HANSEN , 45-65, founder of a national chain of health food stores (Rolling Fields), emanates sixties idealism and new-age spirituality, fundamentally decent but his attempts to repress his high self regard inevitably morph into buffoonery. Tenor G3-G4
