Nobody Loves You "takes audiences on a hilarious behind-the-scenes ride through reality television and into real life," according to The Old Globe. "When Jeff (Kantor, of Broadway's Rent and Next to Normal), a philosophy grad student, joins a dating show to win back his ex, he breaks all the rules and tries to blow the game wide open . . . until he meets Jenny (Barber, of Old Globe's Some Lovers). In a world where every kiss is staged for the cameras, can two people find a real connection?"
The piece, with music and lyrics by Gaby Alter and book and lyrics by Itamar Moses, is directed by Michelle Tattenbaum with music direction by Vadim Feichtner and choreography by Mandy Moore.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
