In its second year of existence, iLove Productions is thrilled to have been accepted into the 2012 New York Fringe Festival with its first show, “Inexperienced Love”. The show is an original musical focused on uncovering the true definition of love. Despite it’s familiar theme, each of the three story lines is unique. The music stays true to the voice of each narrative, leap-frogging from sweeping duets to spitfire comedy to sex-driven gospel. Two lovers confront each other, two introverted high school students lose themselves to their hormones, and one audience member becomes a prospective fiancée. 

This show is backed by team almost completely comprised of Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama students. The piece was conceived in 2010 during an annual event called Playground, a festival of created work fostered by the CMU Drama Program. Since then, it has been produced as a fundraiser event in Vermont, and returned to CMU by popular demand. The show was extremely well received in both locations, but has not yet been exposed to a wider audience.

Now we have been granted this fantastic opportunity, and are very busy preparing. The Fringe will be a demanding and expensive endeavor. Here are a few things our audience members get to look forward to: a new creative team from CMU will be doing an aesthetic overhaul to make “Inexperienced Love” more of a production. This includes fresh set, costume, and lighting designs, as well as a new logo to market with. We’re expanding the score to a small pit orchestra, bringing in sometruly wonderful musicians from multiple states. For ten days, we will rehearse this new product, then from August 10-26 we will have five showings in New York City. We can’t wait to take on these artistic and financial challenges, and any assistance we get will be greatly appreciated. This fledgling theater company is brimming with potential, and we invite you to help get us up and running.
