Arnold loves Ed. Ed loves Arnold, but he also loves Laurel. Arnold also loves Alan. And his Mom. And David. And Murray. Arnold has so much love to give and all he wants is to be loved. Sometimes he looks for that love in the backroom, sometimes in the arms of his former boyfriend, in his conservative mother’s scolds, or in the teasing comments of a young kid who needs a home. With songs of unrequited love as a framework, we follow Arnold’s search for love in New York of the late seventies.

Thu. November 10, 2022, 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM - Fine Arts Theatre in the Fine Arts Building

What follows is a farcical melange of mayhem, misunderstanding, and mistaken identity wherein crowd-pleasing confusion reigns supreme and puns abound.
