The riotous musical farce that is based on the sixteenth century classic, "The Rivals."
All in Love is the hilarious adaptation of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The Rivals, known as the funniest "comedy of manners" ever written. This classic comedy was reinvigorated with a tuneful Golden Age score for the original 1961 Broadway production starring famed funnymen, Dom DeLuise and Charles Kimbrough.
A mismatched collection of blue-blooded eighteenth century Brits swaps affections and misdirected love letters while on vacation in Bath. This classic romantic farce pulls out all of the stops with concealed identities, botched duels for honor, fortunes won and lost, a malapropism-spinning aunt and a mischievous maid. All is revealed in the end, just in time for a series of weddings and betrothals, and the requisite (slightly twisted) happy ending.
A G-rated comic romp, All in Love appeals to a wide range of audiences. It is easily producible, featuring a medium-sized cast, a small orchestra and optional dance component. Perfect for an organization looking to show off the comedy chops of experienced male performers.
