Love in American Times
May 12 - June 5, 2011
by Philip Kan Gotanda
directed by Rick Lombardo

Sparks aren’t the only things flying in this smart, sophisticated, romantic comedy.

The age-old tradition of matchmaking takes a contemporary twist when the powerful, self-made, wealthy businessman, Jack Heller, meets the accomplished, sharp and extremely attractive, Scarlett Mori-Yang in a pre-arranged meeting. Jack and Scarlett deliciously spar, test, probe and one-up each other in what could scarcely resemble a “date,” as they evaluate one another’s qualifications. With a pre-nuptial that looks more like articles of incorporation than a financial arrangement, the deal is sealed. But it isn’t long before dysfunctional chaos breaks out when Jack’s family and soon to be ex-wife enter the picture. Is there room for love with two intractable egos, single-minded practicality and no shortage of money or power?

Approx. Performance Run Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes with one 20 minute intermission.
