The Love Show Musical will explore love during the different stages of life, from pre-teen to old age, through improv and music on Feb. 16. The show, made up of five episodes, will be performed by the Transactors Improv Company, a Chapel Hill-based improv group.
“It’s about love,” said Greg Hohn, director of the show. Hohn also teaches the course “Applied Improv” at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business school.
The play itself isn't scripted. Every year during this time, the Transactors put on a show about love to celebrate Valentine's Day and the season, Hohn said.
The show will take place on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $15.
"What goes deeper for people than romantic love?" Hohn said. "For most people, not much. It’s also that desperation, as funny as it sounds, often is very comedic because it can be difficult to go through, but we often go through these experiences and laugh about them later.”
Hohn said love is a fun thing to explore, and the high stakes that come with romantic love make for entertaining shows — whether scripted or improvised.
