IDEATION PRODUCTIONS is pleased to present LOVE SICK: A ROCK-OPERA, by composer/lyricist Georgia Shreve, directed by James Matthew Daniel. Love Sick: A Rock Opera is performed by seven opera singers and features the six-piece rock band, Contraband, with musical direction by William Day. Love Sick will play four performances Thursday, December 6th through Saturday, December 8th, 2018 at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust (80 N 6th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249).
Love Sick: A Rock-Opera follows Paul on his quest to cure the age-old problem of lovesickness. Thrown out on the street and facing the pain of rejection, Paul embarks on an epic journey to cure his serious ailment. Along the way, he meets Kate, and together they travel through time and space in search of the cure. Together they encounter doctors, a pharmaceutical empire, 17th–century herbalists, and more, but there’s a nagging question: Could the cure be right in front of them the entire time?
