According to the press release, Love Life depicts more than a century and a half of American history through the eyes of a family who never ages and the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world—from the post-revolutionary era to bustling post-World War II America. Accentuated with vaudevillian acts and satiric barbs, Kurt Weill and Alan Jay Lerner’s rarely seen 1948 collaboration is considered by some to be the first “concept musical” and an inspiration for generations of musical theater favorites.
The production runs for seven performances at New York City Center from March 18 – 22. For tickets and more information, visit NYCityCenter.org.
