London, 1967. Beatlemania is in full effect, the "Me" generation is in its prime and Kenneth and Sandra have the world at their fingertips. It's the summer of love, and that's all they need. But what will happen when the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll fade away and these boomers have babies of their own?
A New York premiere from the theatrical voice that dazzled Broadway with King Charles III, Love, Love, Love is the new dark comedy from Olivier Award winner, Mike Bartlett. Tony Award winner Michael Mayer directs this provocative play spanning more than four decades that lays bare the consequences of growing older without growing up.
Roundabout's work with new and emerging playwrights and directors, as well as development of new work, is made possible by Katheryn Patterson and Tom Kempner.
