Richard Armitage, Amy Ryan, Zoe Kazan, and Love, Love, Love Stars Meet the Press
Mike Bartlett's play is directed by Michael Mayer.
The stars of Love, Love, Love, a new play by Mike Bartlett (King Charles III), met the press at their rehearsal studio on August 22. Directed by Michael Mayer, the Roundabout Theatre Company production begins performances on September 22 in advance of an official October 19 opening at the Laura Pels Theatre. The limited engagement will run through December 18.
The cast is made up of 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?"
The creative team includes Derek McLane (sets), Susan Hilferty (costumes), David Lander (lighting) and Kai Harada (sound).
