Back by popular demand, Loveswell, a one-man show that dives deep into the ebbs and flows of a relationship through the eyes of a surfer, returns to the prestigious Hudson Guild Theatre on May 1st.
The show—written and performed by John Fortson and directed by Terrie Silverman—earned critical and audience raves and packed the house during its original run in 2005.
Fortson, who some call "the next Spalding Gray," was compelled to revive Loveswell by legions of fans, as well as Silverman. "John’s gotten deeper and has gone to the next level," Silverman observes. "Loveswell is so great—poignant, funny, heart-opening and truthful. John is in his power as an actor and writer."
In this revival, Fortson introduces parenting into the hilarious but brutally honest script that allows the audience to peer behind closed doors as he struggles to balance the demands of marriage and fatherhood with his love for waves.
