Love is an adaptation from the original play entitled "LUV" which won a Tony Award.
This play is more sorrowful than "Romeo And Juliet." "LUV"possesses qualities which
surpass those found in the original play "Romeo And Juliet."
Believe in the moment. Warning to true love and happiness. Everybody dreams of having a happy life and
finding true love but how many people have actually achievedthese things? People usually discover that they
have found these things only when it’s too late to possess them. An example of this is when people realize
the importance of having fresh air to breathe when they are underwater gasping for a single breath. People
often recognize the importance of their relationships with their parents after they have passed on to the next life.
It is only when healthy people turn sick that they recognize the value of good health. People spend most
of their lives searching long and far for the things that will make their lives complete. While on this quest they
lose sight that the very things which they seek already exist all around them. These concepts are all beautifully
portrayed in the fascinating performance "LUV."

The setting of this play is at the sea shore. The stage is covered with black cloth which represents the depths
of the ocean and is decorated with Christmas lights. Shadows of trees are cast in the foreground of the stage.
There is a single blue bench which sits facing the audience. The actors sit upon the bench while enjoying
there time at the seashore.
The scenes between Harry and Milt bring laughter to the audience. In particular the scenes of Harry’s seizure and
the scene of Milt putting makeup on Ellen’s face to impress Harry are audience favorites. The humor of these
scenes comes from the exaggerated acting and facial expressions of the actors. During the changing of scenes
a performer named Joe comes to the stage and performs songs about both love and hatred. His performance
provides a musical atmosphere as the actors sing along to Joe’s music.
This performance connects with those in the audience who have experienced a crisis in their relationships,
those who are in love and those who are falling in love. The goal of the performance is to draw the audience’s
attention to people’s constant desire for love through the story of these three characters. It is my hope that this
performance can serve as a guide for those who fall in love to easily and for those who break up to easily.
