Amy gets dumped by Chuck right before prom. Susie and Stacy are bridesmaids and think the groom is gay. Brad and Doug have a bro-mantic moment in the elevator. Brian and Jessica wake up after a night only one of them remembers. LoveSick is an uproarious collection of modern love songs and stories on the most dreaded day of the year: Valentine’s Day.
Project Y’s mission: incubating new work and using technology to attract new audiences to the theatre. First a reading in 2008, then a series of scenes filmed guerilla-style in 2009, later a 2010 workshop adding the musical elements, LoveSick’s journey culminates in this World Premiere.
"Sharp, funny, and relevant." - Curtain Up
"LoveSick is joyous, clever and uplifting, and left me feeling happy for those who’ve found love, and hopeful for myself that maybe Bob’s wrong, and romance might still be in the cards for me after all." - NyTheatre
"The multitude of actors and actresses do well with their roles, with noteworthy turns by Pat McRoberts, who is also the band's lead guitarist; Jeff Tuohy, as a man in an elevator on the way to a wedding; and Barrett Hall as a man going to great lengths to win back a past love." - Theatermania
