Had a chance to see LOVE, the latest production from The Production Company, under the direction of Mark Armstrong, longtime blogger under the moniker Mr. Excitement.
Those who want to see it (and I'm sure you do) should buy tickets online here pretty quickly. I saw it Sunday at 3pm and they had to add seats. Which is, as you probably know, not a small achievement. Especially for so early in the run.
The play itself, by Australian writer Patricia Cornelius, is a love triangle between a lesbian, a prostitute and a guy named Lorenzo. It's not territory that's unexplored, but there's exceptional work on display. The direction and acting are all wonderful, and the play doesn't pull its punches.
Definitely check it out.
