Love Quirks Now Playing Off-Broadway at St Lukes Theatre

Love Quirks will begin previews at St. Luke’s Theatre on Friday, February 28th with an official opening of Monday, March 16th.

Love Quirks is a new musical fable based on actual events as a group of thirty-somethings explore the bizarre tribulations of love, friendship, and all the blurry lines in-between.

Four broken hearts must face the past and look to the future, as they march march into the strange and often hilarious world of love on the island of Manhattan. What they find is never what they expect, and they must face up to their own Love Quirks to move forward.

“With a score that shines and four strong performers each struggling through very different love stories, Love Quirks is If/Then meets First Date: a new musical for a new generation of a new New York.”

“That’s the big thing that Seth Bisen-Hersh and Mark Childers get right with their show…they’ve succeeded at telling a story today’s struggling singles probably really need to hear.” — Talkin’ Broadway
