The evening is both conceived and directed by playwright Kimberly Belflower (Lost Girl, An Emily Dickinson Christmas) who is an MFA Playwriting candidate at the University of Texas - Austin. Songwriter Joey Contreras will musical direct a cast of young Broadway storytellers through the evening.
The show is billed as follows, "There is no contemporary songwriter more prolific in articulating the highs and lows of young love than Taylor Swift. Her songs – some familiar to all, some lesser-known – span one universal emotional territory. Using selections from all four of Swift’s studio albums alongside intermittent spoken-word poetry and narration, A Taylor Swift Love Story will construct a singular, chronological story of young love from beginning to end."
Along with Weed and Damiano, A Taylor Swift Love Story will feature Blake Daniel (Spring Awakening, Hello Again), Andrew Durand (War Horse, The Wild Bride, Spring Awakening), Lilli Cooper (The Threepenny Opera, Spring Awakening, Wicked) and Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal).
There is a $30-$50 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum.
