Richard Armitage, Zoe Kazan, and More to Star in Love, Love, Love
Love, Love, Love, a new play by Mike Bartlett (King Charles III), has announced complete casting for its fall mounting at Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre.
The cast will feature Richard Armitage (The Hobbit), Alex Hurt (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Zoe Kazan (The Seagull), Ben Rosenfield (Boardwalk Empire), and Amy Ryan (A Streetcar Named Desire).
The story is described as follows: "It's the late 1960s in a north London flat, and Henry is excitedly anticipating the arrival of his date, Sandra. The night changes course when Sandra and Henry's brother Kenneth quickly realize how much they have in common — their love of Rock and Roll and their love of marijuana, for starters. A fiery relationship is sparked in the haze of the '60s, and charred by today's brutal realities. Fast forward 23 years, and the economy and politics of an ever-changing world are wearing on the marriage of this baby-boomer couple. Can they remain faithful to each other while trying to provide a loving and supportive home for their children — children who are growing up in a time when the next generation is not always provided for?"
Directed by Michael Mayer, the production begins performances September 22 in advance of an official October 19 opening. The limited engagement will run through December 18.
