Thespian Thursday:  Richard Armitage Starring in Love Love Love Play in NYC Begins Previews Tonight!  Break a leg!  September 22, 2016 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #972)

Though I won’t be able to see the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage’s
(below, with costar Amy Ryan, via Theatre Mania) latest play Love Love Love produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company in NYC, written by Mike Bartlett and directed by Michael Mayer in NYC, I wish them all the best for tonight’s beginning of Previews!  Break a leg!


The show runs through December 18, 2016.  Below is the Love Love Love play synopsis from the Roundabout Theatre’s Love Love Love website:

“London, 1967. Beatlemania is in full effect, the “Me” generation is in its prime and Kenneth and Sandra have the world at their fingertips. It’s the summer of love, and that’s all they need. But what will happen when the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll fade away and these boomers have babies of their own?”

Or as I coined it in my first post about Richard Armitage’s announcement of his participation in the playHipsters become Oldsters with Youngsters.  Ha!

And one way to show my support for Richard Armitage and his Love Love Love theatre colleagues, was to create a little poster (below) touting Love Love Love—the play will be presented on the stage of the Laura Pels Theatre—using one of the  Roundabout Theatre’s Love3 graphics for the background image.


And if you are lucky enough to see the play, I hope that you have a fabulous time!  And be sure to share your thoughts and experiences with your fellow Richard Armitage fans.  Cheers!


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
