Looking for a fun show for date night or with friends? Love Actually? The Unauthorized Musical Parody is a terrific idea. My husband and I went to a preview screening a couple of weeks ago and had the best time!
Hint: It helps if you’ve seen Love Actually the movie. With a small cast that took on several roles each, we were in stitches. Absolute stitches. I am not sure if I’ve laughed that hard in some time!
“The hilarious, brand-new musical follows nine quirky, questionable couples looking for love across the pond, and even 16 years after the movie premiere, we still ask ourselves these questions every Christmas…
Whether you love Love Actually or love to hate Love Actually or have never seen Love Actually, you will actually love this musical! Get ready for awkward meet cutes, over-the-top grand gestures, and Mr. Bean! Oh, and lots and lots of love, actually.
Is love… Falling for your secretary when you are Prime Minster? Falling for your secretary when you are married to Emma Thompson? Falling for the maid after your wife cheats on you? Falling for your best friend’s wife and showing up with poster boards?
My Take On It:
You don’t even need to be a fan of Love Actually the movie to like this – but it will help you connect all the dots for the plot lines. It was absolutely hysterical and I laughed through most of the show. It’s great for a date night or a night out with friends. I would not bring kids to the show because it does feature mature themes.
It’s a small theater and every seat in the house will still let you see all the action.
