The Love School, starring Shannon Cosgrove, Sarah Tucker and Manda Lavin, with help from guitarists James Gregory and Carson Lewis, opens this Saturday night for just one session.
“We hope you’re here for an easy A,” Cosgrove says to welcome her students. Then she describes the professors: Anika Amore, who enjoys long walks on the beach and long chats over green tea, and Lucy Lyubov, a speed-dating enthusiast.
The night’s lecture “will scratch the surface of the four-letter word ‘love,’” Cosgrove promises.
“Join these dynamic academics as they shine a light on the most maddening, engaging and quicksilver of all the noun/verb combinations: ‘love.’”
Tucker, the Allé Stage hostess who will play keyboard during the Love School’s recess breaks, elaborated: The evening will feature rapid-fire one-liners performed by Cosgrove and Lavin, who portray the two professors. Together, they will explore many kinds of love, from angry to true.
The performance, with its musical interludes, will run from 7 p.m. till 9 p.m., with refreshments available at The Loom, the bar beside Studio Bob. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 to $10, and the venue is found upstairs at 118˝ E. Front St.
