The new musical comedy NOBODY LOVES YOU follows a philosophy grad student who auditions for - and surprisingly finds himself cast on - a reality TV dating show, all in an attempt to win back his ex-girlfriend. But when an unexpected on-set love connection threatens to ruin his plan, manufactured drama collides with real emotion in this original new musical.
NOBODY LOVES YOU had its world premiere at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre in the summer of 2012. Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called NOBODY LOVES YOU, "CONSISTENTLY WITTY...A DELIGHTFUL CHAMBER MUSICAL" while Margaret Gray of the Los Angeles Times called it "FRESH, PERTINENT, AND VERY, VERY FUNNY," and Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal said the show is "CRISP, SMART AND IMPECCABLY ACCOMPLISHED...ONE OF THE BEST MUSICALS OF THE SEASON."
Casting and additional creative team will be announced shortly.
