Love Is Dead:
A Necromantic Musical Comedy

James Asmus, winner of the 2001 World's Playwright Competition, wrote Love is Dead and plays Orin, an introverted mortician who has "professional boundary issues." Orin gets nervous that his secrets will be unearthed when a geneticist comes to town to help solve a spat of serial murders. Orin quickly finds he has more to lose than he originally thought as he falls in love with a living, breathing woman.

"It's not the typical show you expect from a comedy theater," Director Andrew Hobgood said. "We created this to attract people who don't typically enjoy musical theater. In the style of hip, genre-breaking musicals such as Avenue Q, Urinetown, and Little Shop of Horrors, we hope to reinvigorate the musical theater audience. It's Six Feet Under meets Singing in the Rain."

While Love is Dead is a sophisticated, dark comedy, it is also a story of murder and betrayal and as such contains ADULT MATERIAL. DISCRETION ADVISED.
