In ancient Jerusalem, a young wife in a passionless marriage discovers she has an unseen admirer. Intrigued, she enters into a mysterious and fervent love affair, finding herself on a dizzying journey of awakening. Hailed as “extraordinary…lush…full of surprises” (San Francisco Chronicle), Love Sick is the powerful new musical that has critics and audiences on their feet. Receiving the San Francisco Chronicle’s highest rating, this “beautiful and remarkable piece of theater” (KPFA) fuses a dynamic world-music score with a story inspired by the erotic Hebrew text The Song of Songs. Featuring a “wonderfully compelling and intense” (San Jose Mercury News) tour-de-force performance by Ofra Daniel, and helmed by Broadway and West End director Christopher Renshaw, Love Sick is this season’s must-see theatrical event.
With performances first at Berkeley’s intimate Osher Theater, followed by a run at the beautiful Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts in February, Bay Area audiences are the first to experience this truly original theatrical event.
