The Love Show Musical

February 16, 8:00-10:00 PM
The ArtsCenter, 300-G E. Main St., Carrboro

This year’s Love Show is a musical comprised of five episodes, each focusing on romantic love at a different stage in life, from pre-teen through adolescence, adulthood, middle age, and old age. The scenes are improvised from audience suggestions and the music will be a mixture of improvised numbers as well as existing songs by the likes of Kurt Weill, John Prine, and Lennon and McCartney.

We’ve been doing shows about love for over 25 years. It’s our favorite subject because the emotions are so high, from desperation to euphoria. And most have us have experienced it, the ups, downs, and in between, so the audience identifies with what the characters. It also makes for a great Valentine’s Day date!

The cast for The Love Show Musical includes Anoo Tree Brod, director Greg Hohn, Juliet Kaplan, Bart Hubbard, Steve Scott, Steven Warnock, and Jane Allen Wilson. Glenn Mehrbach provides piano accompaniment. Jenn Evans handles lights and sound.

Transactors Improv celebrates the season with Christmas with the Folks Who Live on the Hill, a two-act show featuring improvised songs. The performance is based on audience suggestions and divided into five episodes with live musical accompaniment by pianist Glenn Mehrbach.

Inspired by the 1937 Kern/Hammerstein song The Folks Who Live on the Hill, the show follows the changes in a family and its home through five snapshot scenes from holiday celebrations over the decades. Children, grandchildren, in laws, neighbors, and friends come and go during good and bad times, weaving multi-hued threads in the tapestry of the family’s life.

Anoo Tree Brod, director Greg Hohn, Bart Hubbard, Juliet Kaplan, Steve Scott, Steven Warnock, and Jane Allen Wilson make up the cast. Jenn Evans masters technical effects from the booth.
