Love, Love, Love

CRITICS' PICK "Love, Love, Love pulls you along through the decades with galloping satirical wit as Mike Bartlett's heat-seeking intelligence locates telling and authentic emotional detail. A nigh-perfect ensemble!" Ben Brantley, The New York Times

FOUR STARS "Hilarious and scathing. Together the ensemble joins to create one of the most indelibly and viciously failed families to grace the contemporary stage.” Alexis Soloski, The Guardian

"A flawless, searing satire." Marilyn Stasio, Variety

London, 1967. Beatlemania is in full effect, the “Me” generation is in its prime and Kenneth and Sandra have the world at their fingertips. It’s the summer of love, and that’s all they need. But what will happen when the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll fade away and these boomers have babies of their own?
 
A New York premiere from the theatrical voice that dazzled Broadway with King Charles III, Love, Love, Love is the “riveting and exhilarating” (The Guardian) dark comedy from Olivier Award winner Mike Bartlett. Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) directs this provocative play spanning more than four decades that lays bare the consequences of growing older without growing up.

This is a limited engagement off-Broadway through December 18, 2016 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. 

Partial underwriting support for Love, Love, Love is provided by the Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater and by Lauren and Danny Stein.

Roundabout’s work with new and emerging playwrights and directors, as well as development of new work, is made possible by Katheryn Patterson and Tom Kempner.
