About Love, a new play with songs and music, opened at Culture Project at the Sheen Center on Bleecker Street on March 4. For more insight, here are some interviews with the cast and creatives by Magda Katz.
The play has lyrics by jazz artist Nancy Harrow and script and direction by Will Pomerantz. It tells a story of a young man who expects to spend a quiet summer with his parents in the Russian countryside, discovering that those three months will be the most consequential of his life learning about love and passion and the nature of life itself. It’s inspired by Ivan Turgenev’s short story “First Love” published in 1860.
The cast features Silvia Bond, Helen Coxe, Dan Domingues, Jeffrey Kringer, Tom Patterson and Joan Tafler. Limited Run thru March 22. OvationTix.com or 212 925-2812
