Matt Bogart and Jessica Boevers to Star in Paper Mill's Romance/Romance
Written by Barry Harman and Keith Herrmann, Romance/Romance is actually a pair of one act musicals. The first one, based on Arthur Schnitzler's The Little Comedy, concerns two society folk who set out to find meaningful relationships by posing as paupers; the second, "Summer Share," is an update of Jules Renard's play Pain de Ménage, about two friends who consider having an affair with each other.
The 1988 Broadway production of Romance/Romance received five Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, and Best Lead Actor and Actress noms for Scott Bakula and Alison Fraser.
The Paper Mill production will also feature Danette Holden and Mark Ledbetter. The creative team includes Wendy Sybb (choreography), John O'Neill (musical direction), David Zinn (sets and costumes), Jeff Croiter (lighting), and Randy Hansen (sound).
