Love Trapezoid by Matt Schatz

February 10-18, 2012


Things were looking up for Betty Lou Mandell. She just wrote a musical. She just met a boy. But when her beloved composer/collaborator dies suddenly, she finds herself unable to move on. Or write. In an effort to help her with both problems, her new boyfriend invents a music-composing robot. Instead, Betty Lou uses this robot to bring her late collaborator back from the dead. Sort of. When this new “collaboration” begins to affect her other relationships, Betty Lou must choose between being a writer and being a girlfriend in this musical comedy that examines art, technology, and everything we use to grieve the loss of someone that we love.

Love Trapezoid was originally commissioned by the Ensemble Studio Theatre/ Alfred P. Sloan Science and Technology project. It has been developed and presented by EST/Sloan, EST/Southampton Arts, Page 73 Productions, Creative Destruction, and in concert at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. It has been a finalist for the O’Neill National Music Theater Conference and the Yale Institute for Music Theatre.

Sponsored by NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, NYSCA, and the Dramatist Guild Fund.
