"What About Luv?"
November 4 to 13, 2010 - Waterfront Theatre

Music by Howard Marren
Book by Jeffrey Sweet
Lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
Based on the play LUV by Murray Schisgal


On a bridge over New York's East River, Milt Manville encounters Harry Berlin, an old friend from college days with suicide on his mind. Milt, who portrays himself to the down-and-out Harry as happy and successful, has fallen in love with and wants t marry a young woman named Linda. But there is a slightly messy problem: Milt's wife, Ellen. It suddenly occurs to Milt that Harry may be the solution to the problem. So, when Ellen shows up, Milt introduces them and abruptly departs on a pretext. Alone together, Ellen and Harry quickly discover they are soulmates.

One thing leads to several others and, a very damp fur coat, neuroses, intrigue, passion, jealousy and a used paper bag all add up to one of the most hilarious small musicals ever written!
