About the Show/Event
Information for Romance Romance at Above the Stag Theatre, Inner London (Musical). This charming and intelligent musical brings together two contrasting stories, set 100 years apart. In late 19th Century Vienna, two bored high-society lovers disguise themselves as struggling members of the working class. Can their love survive without the comforts and luxuries they're used to? And 100 years later, two couples rent a cottage in The Hamptons, where a spot of extramarital flirtation might explode into something more. Romance Romance was nominated for five Tony Awards for its Broadway run. This new production reimagines it as a brilliantly entertaining exploration of gay attraction.
