Love Therapy, Starring Two-Time Tony Nominee Alison Fraser, Ends Limited Off-Broadway Engagement May 25
By Andrew Gans
The limited engagement of Wendy Beckett's new play, Love Therapy, which officially opened at the DR2 Theatre April 29 following previews that began April 20, plays its final performances at the Off-Broadway venue May 25 at 2 PM and 8 PM.
Directed by Evan Bergman, the cast features David Bishins, Christopher Burns, two-time Tony nominee Alison Fraser, Margot White and Janet Zarish.
Love Therapy is described as a "play about a young therapist who finds herself out of her depth when intimacy, attraction and passion collide with the healing process."
About her latest role, Tony-nominated actress Fraser previously told Playbill.com, "As you saw in Divine Sister and School for Lies and all of those wonderful plays that I've had the good fortune to be in the past few years — I get cast as the villain a lot… Wendy has really, in an act of fabulousness, written me not as the villain, but as incredibly warm and pragmatic, and I'm really almost a mother figure in this, and I'm very helpful to the leading character who's going through a lot of emotional turmoil because she has developed a sexual attraction — she's a therapist who's developed a sexual attraction for one of her clients… I am a waitress at a diner/bar, and I talk to her. She's my friend even though she's quite a bit younger than I am, and we talk things out, and I have a very different view of therapy than she has. I have that opinion that you just need a good friend to talk to. And, it's a lovely part." Read the full Diva Talk interview here.
Love Therapy is the fourth in a series of ten of Beckett’s plays that will be brought across the Pacific from Australia by Pascal Productions.
The creative team included sound designer John Emmett O’Brien, costume designer Patricia E. Dougherty, set designer Jo Winiarski and lighting designer Jill Nagle lighting designer.
DR2 Theatre is located at 101 East 15th Street. Tickets are $45 and are available by visiting telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
