BWW Review: LOVE QUIRKS Sparks
LOVE QUIRKS, a new New York love story about four roommates finding love, is a charming new piece from Seth Bisen-Hersh and Mark Childers, now playing at Theatre 54.
LOVE QUIRKS finds roommates Steph and Lilli awaiting new roommate Chris, who is moving into old roommate, and Lilli's gay ex-boyfriend Ryan's room. When Ryan needs a place to stay, Lilli, who is still hopelessly in love with him, is immediately against Chris, who finds himself drawn to a very headstrong Steph. A heartbreak there, a one-night stand there- it's the classic tale of young people in love: it's a story for anyone who's ever been in love in the big city- it's modern and comfortable, yet relevant and fresh.
With a score that shines and four strong performers (Teresa Hui, Robert McCaffrey, Brian Shaw, and Lauren Testerman) each struggling through very different love stories, LOVE QUIRKS is If/Then meets First Date: a new musical for a new generation of a new New York.
LOVE QUIRKS will be playing a limited three week run midtown at Theatre 54 (244 W 54th Street, 12 Floor) with previews beginning on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 8PM. The show will have its official opening on Friday, September 19, 2014 at 8PM and will run through Sunday, September 28, 2014 at 3PM.
