Love, Always
a new musical

book & direction by Bill Connington
music & lyrics by Michael Cooper
music direction by Danny Bernstein

featuring Brian Detlefs and Sarah Rolleston*

One Man, one woman–love follows. Love, Always, is a new musical that charts the course of love over 100 years. Starting in the current day, each scene moves back ten years in time, the actors playing several parts. How men and women interact has changed, but the need for love is everlasting.
