Lovesick, according to BCP, "is Guarani's tribute to all the crazy places love has taken him – from a Catholic School closet in Doylestown, PA to American Idol in Hollywood and ultimately, to Broadway and back home to Bucks County. With a nine-piece band and music from Burt Bacharach to Beck to Ben Folds, Lovesick promises to be an evening of raucous and revealing storytelling."
Guarini, the first runner up on the Fox reality series "American Idol," has also been seen on Broadway in American Idiot and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
