Due to ongoing popular demand, the Elephant Theatre Company's smash hit world premiere production of Love Sick by Kristina Poe, directed by David Fofi, will re-open at Elephant Stages/Theatre Asylum for 12 performances only, beginning Friday, November 18 at 8pm. Theatre Asylum is next door to the Elephant Space, where the show completed its original run on November 5.
Love Sick is a graphic tale which follows one woman's dark and comic quest for revenge. When Emily's happily ever after comes crashing down, she embarks on a journey of seduction, power, coercion and self-discovery which quickly descends into a riddled web of mysterious and alluring encounters. Playwright Kristina Poe wrote Love Sick, her first play, as a member of LAByrinth Theater Company in New York City.
The cast of Love Sick (in alphabetical order) is Robert John Brewer, Etienne Eckert, Michael Friedman, Christopher Game, Laura Harman, Alexandra Hoover, Kate Huffman, Melanie Jones, Nikki McCauley, Tara Norris, Charles Pacello, Dominic Rains, Kenny Suarez, Caryl West, and Salvator Xuereb. The set design is by Elephant Stageworks, lighting design is by Matt Richter, costume design is by Louis Douglas Jacobs, and sound design is by Joseph Slawinski. The stage manager is Rebecca Schoenberg, and Love Sick is produced for the Elephant by Lindsay Allbaugh, Cheryl Huggins, and Tara Norris.
