Darlinghurst Theatre Company produces the premiere of a new Australian play by Jeanette Cronin directed by Kim Hardwick, with music composed and played live by Max Lambert and Roger Lock.
I Love You Now is a tragi-comedy and love puzzle that takes a long hard look at intimacy, desire and delity.
Leo loved his wife June but now he loves Michelle and is seeing Melissa, the nanny, on the side. Meanwhile, June is having an a air with Rob, Leo’s brother and is sleeping with Helmut, her personal trainer. With Jeanette Cronin and Paul Gleeson performing all roles, I Love You Now asks the big ‘love’ questions. Does love run out? Or is love only limited by our imagination?
Jeanette Cronin has worked extensively as an actor in theatre, lm and television in Australia and has more recently begun writing for the stage. Glenn Terry, Executive Producer for Darlinghurst Theatre Company said of I Love You Now; “For our 2017 season we looked at many scripts by leading playwrights from Australia and overseas and I found Jeanette Cronin’s easy style and dialogue to be outstanding and world class. On top of this, Jeanette is a powerhouse performer and I’m very proud to be championing this new Australian work.”
I Love You Now features two of Australia’s leading musicians in Max Lambert and Roger Lock who have long desired to play together. I Love You Now has provided this opportunity as it calls for live music though out including original tango compositions. Max is a renowned composer and musical director and has recorded with Kate Ceberano, Wendy Matthews, Grace Knight, Vince Jones, Renee Geyer, Paul Kelly, Iva Davies and Icehouse. Lambert collaborated on a number of musicals with Nick Enright including the Boy from Oz and the reprisal of his musical Miracle City was a critical success in 2014. Roger is a classical guitarist, concert and recording artist who has performed internationally and has produced several albums with Yorgos Nousis, Laetitia Ribeiro, Dr. Opin and Troebinger.
