News   An Affair and Deception Spark Moonlight & Love Songs in NYC Beginning Nov. 6
 
Scott C. Sickles' Moonlight & Love Songs, a romantic drama about a middle-aged architect whose life is shaken by his love affair with a much younger man, begins an Off-Off-Broadway run Nov. 6.

The production by WorkShop Theater Company in Manhattan continues to Nov. 22. David Gautschy, who collaborated with Sickles on the WorkShop's comedy Intellectuals, directs.

The cast is headed by Jeff Woodman (Lincoln Center's Cymbeline) and Ryan Tresser (Measure for Measure at the Public Theater) and features Anne Frizzard, Michael Gnat, David M. Mead, Jeff Paul and Nicole Taylor.

Here's how WorkShop characterizes the play: "Forty-five and alone, architect Harry Wallace's romantic dreams come true when he falls in love with Jim Bennett, a sexy young college student. Their romance seems motion-picture perfect until a revelation about Jim causes it to implode. As the ensuing public outrage leaves Harry a pariah within his community and his family, Jim attempts to repair the damage caused by his betrayal. When Harry comes face-to-face with Jim again, he must confront his complicity in Jim's deception."
