Ten nameless characters explore the joys of sex, love and intimacy in Michael John LaChiusa's adult musical fantasy, HELLO AGAIN.  A re-imagining of Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde, HELLO AGAIN, crisscrosses beds and jumps from decade to decade, intimately examining the painful secrets that drive people into one another's arms on the quest for the perfect love, the perfect muse or the perfect moment.

 

In a daisy chain of two-handers, one character from each scene abandons their current love in favour of the next, until the circle of lovers is complete.  Borrowing musical styles from each decade, HELLO AGAIN explores everything from sleek and seductive jazz to raunchy rock to pulsating club beats.  This sexy, sultry modern spin on a classic play will tantalize, titillate and tease the audience with everything from a hot waltz to a burlesque strip show.

 

Michelle Ouellet is a Toronto based filmmaker, theatre director and co-founder of Ante-M Theatre. Michelle has directed many of Ante-M's productions, including Getting Through, The Widower, Nana and GREEN or An Anthem for Young Love.  In addition to HELLO AGAIN, Michelle is currently directing the independent feature film Hooked on Speedman, featuring Maury Chaykin.
