Beane has always been different. Joan, his sister, is his only real bridge to the outside world, but she is consumed with her own life, climbing the corporate ladder and sparring with her husband, Harry. When Beane falls madly in love with Molly, Beane’s world suddenly expands, and the seismic shift forces all of them to reexamine their own relationships and discover new facets of human connection. An off-kilter romantic comedy, Love Song by John Kolvenbach is a quick-witted exploration of the countless complexities of love and the endless capacity of the heart.

 

“I first saw a production of Love Song in London in 2006 and I was so moved that I bought the script in the lobby. John Kolvenbach’s use of language and his comic sensibility won me over immediately. I loved that his “rom com” explored so many kinds of love: romantic love, familial love, marital love and self-love. Now, 17 years later, I am delighted to direct Love Song at Remy Bumppo. Together, with a magnificent team of artists, we will create a laugh-out-loud comedy that tugs at the heartstrings,” said Artistic Director Marti Lyons.

The cast for Love Song features Ensemble Member Terry Bell* (he/him/his, Beane); Sarah Coakley Price* (she/her/hers, Joan);Isa Arciniegas (she/her/hers, Molly) and Ryan Hallahan* (he/him/his, Harry/Waiter).
