About Love

Performances were interrupted by the closing of the theatre March 12, 2020, due to the pandemic.

About Love is a new play with songs and music, based on the exquisite short story, “First Love,” by Ivan Turgenev. Featuring a haunting jazz score by Nancy Harrow and a versatile cast of six playing eighteen characters, all within a bold, theatrical staging by Will Pomerantz, About Love promises to be a unique theatrical event.

A young man expects to spend a quiet summer with his parents in the Russian countryside, but soon discovers those three months will be most consequential of his life, as he learns the difference between love and passion and the ephemeral nature of life itself.
