THE STORY

Can six middle-aged, baggage-laden, mixed up people find love the second time around? Set at a singles mixer at the 92nd street Y, LITMA is a romantic and hilarious cabaret-style “light” musical that takes an affectionate look at romance among 40- and 50-somethings.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

I directed the premiere production of this delightful and edgy little musical in November 2013, co-authoring the book with veteran comedy writer Eric Kornfeld to music by Michelangelo Sosnowitz.

FUTURE PLANS

Love In The Middle Ages returns to Stage 72 on February 14th of this year for 8 shows over four consecutive weekends. Scheduling conflicts forced to me to turn the directing reigns over to choreographer Lisa Shriver, but I still look forward to this next stage of development. Don’t miss it!
