I saw this play early on in my college career, and absolutely fell in love Not only was the performance one of tremendous timing, unmatched chemistry, and fantastic versatility, the script itself the flow of the lines, the constant wit and banter was something truly special While I cannot say that Love Song takes my number one spot, it certainly ranks among my top ten, mostly for its very funny, very smart and quick dialogue, and its ability to make the reader audience stop and think. Read this play for my acting class Not bad but not the best play ever It s interesting and the dialogue is quirky Molly is very interesting I ll have to do some pondering about this play. Beane is an exile from life an oddball His well meaning sister Joan and brother in law Harry try and make time for him in their busy lives, but no one can get through Following the burglary of his apartment, Joan is baffled to find her brother blissfully happy and tries to unravel the story behind Beane s mysterious new love Molly A quirky, moving piece of the simultaneous laugh weep type Love The Beane A light effort, but really funny and really quite lovely Kolvenbach straddles the line between sentimentality and real emotion in a way that is the hallmark of a true craftsman. Kolvenbach is my new favorite playwright This play is so clever, so funny, and yet so touching Love this play
