LA Hit YOU LOVE THAT I'M NOT YOUR WIFE to Make NYC Debut
From Joanne Mosconi, the Co-Writer/Director of the Off- Broadway hit Marry, F*** or Kill, comes the New York City premiere of the fast-paced dramedy You Love That I'm NOT Your Wife - running November 3-18, 2017 at The Steve and Marie Sgouros Theatre in Greenwich Village, New York. The official press opening is Friday, November 3, 2017.
You Love That I'm NOT Your Wife features a tableau of quirky characters all pursuing love in its various dysfunctional forms, just as modern relationships mirror contemporary life in LA. Sexier and edgier than Marry, F*** or Kill (which The L.A. Times called "A guilty pleasure for veterans of the single life."), Mosconi's newest offering is both riotous and clever in its depiction of the delusions and conventions that preside over romantic endeavors in the land of movie stars and silicone.
You Love That I'm NOT Your Wife tells the stories of five women and five men living in Los Angeles for ten different reasons. But they all have one thing in common - they need love and are looking for it in all the wrong places. When impish Marie invites all her friends for dinner to meet suave Tony Ciccarelli, her new fiance? (after only a month of dating), secrets, betrayals and of course, impulsive sex, hilariously jeopardize each and every one of their relationships. That is, until young, uncorrupted and uninhibited Sebastian arrives - a 20-year old boy-toy who presents a voice of reason to the group of more experienced but far less self-aware group of friends. But will they listen to him?
