Protagonist Charlie Styptic's inner monologue is personified in LOVE ME, a new play presented by Funny… Sheesh Productions and directed by Daryl Boling, as part of the 2nd Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity.
Underachieving writer/motivational speaker Charlie Styptic is mired in a lifelong love life slump. Forever lovesick yet chronically self-effacing, he's haplessly counseled by a simpleminded sidekick and a newly befriended womanizer. Will he ever find love or be eternally controlled by the incessantly critical voice in his head?
Over a decade in the making and inspired by the original Funny… Sheesh troupe, LOVE ME is an extreme comedy about the never-ending search for love and artistic fulfillment in an unforgiving world. It’s forty-four furiously fast scenes of belly slaps, belly laughs and extreme cognitive dissonance.
The cast is comprised of James Cichewicz*, Kaira Klueber, Ridley Parson, Aaron Rossini*, Daina Stefanie Schatz*, Laura Schwenninger*, Victoria Watson*, Jeff Wills*. (* denotes members of AEA).
The crew consists of Phillip Chavira (Assistant Director), Laura Schlachtmeyer (Stage Manager), Lauren Parrish (Lighting Designer), Isabelle Fields (Costume Designer) and Sheila Phalon (Set Designer).
Funny… Sheesh Productions is pleased to present LOVE ME as part of the 2nd Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity. The Festivity will take place June 3rd through the 27th at Gene Frankel Theatre, The Robert Moss Theater at 440 Studios and The Bleecker Street Theatre in New York City. The production benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City.
