Following a tremendously successful run of Hot Mikado at The Lichfield Garrick Theatre earlier this year, critically acclaimed House of Greasepaint Productions are bringing the hilarious musical comedy I Love You Because to London for a strictly limited run, opening on 24th November, 2015 at London Theatre Workshop, Fulham.
I Love You Because is a modern twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, set in contemporary New York City. A young, uptight greeting card writer’s life is changed when he meets a flighty photographer. Along with their eccentric friends and siblings, they learn to love each other not in spite of their faults, but because of them.
Originally staged on Off-Broadway at the Village Theatre and in London at the Landor Theatre, the show features music by Joshua Salzman with book and lyrics by Ryan Cunningham.
This romantic comedy stars Jamie Jones as Austen, Vitalyia Harbord as Marcy, Rachel Wrighte as Diana and Daniel Roberts as Jeff. Completing the cast are Alfie Kentesber, Abbie Mead, James Rowney and Kaii Songhurst.
