Richly comic, enchanting and wonderfully touching, Love Song is an off-beat romantic comedy about the contagious effects of love. The play received its world premiere at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company and the subsequent London production received an Olivier Award nomination for Best New Comedy. Chicago Tribune critic Chris Jones declared the show "A refreshing spring breeze...dreamy, gentle, slightly silly...sending you out into spring thinking about love." And the London Telegraph called Love Song, "One of the best plays of the year. A smashing, compassionate new play." The play is R-rated for language and theme.
The play will be produced by Denise Bessette and Olivia Sklar. Joel Goss serves as Associate producer. The design team will include Andreea Mincic (scenery) Andrew Gmoser (lighting), Amy Clarke (costumes) and Jon Kadela (sound design.)
NEXT UP: On Friday, March 12th, Fighting Over Beverley will be presented as part of a year-long, world-wide festival sponsored by the Barefoot Theatre Company celebrating playwright Israel Horovitz's 70th Birthday with presentations of 70 of his plays. Horovitz will attend the HSC event and participate in the Q&A immediately following the performance. The reading will be directed by Matthew Arkin (Murderers) and features actress Barbara Dana, Susannah Schulman (Rabbit Hole) and Broadway veterans Walter Charles (After All) and Paul Hecht. $10 general admission.
