You'll laugh yourself silly in this tongue-firmly-in-cheek evening of theatre replete with magic and mayhem, fops and fairies, mistaken identity, romance, humor, and mind-boggling feats of verbal and physical legerdemain. The 8-member cast, in the renowned Actors' Repertory Theatre commedia-carnival style, creates a host of over 30 characters, bringing to the stage all the stuff that dreams (and musicals) are made on.


With complimentary pre-show wine and sweets included in price of admission, it's the best theatre deal in town. Written and directed by the award-winning creative team of Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie, Love in Bloom features members of internationally renowned Actors' Repertory Theatre Patrick Censoplano (Fame), Rachel Galper (A Love Affair), Graham Silbert (Cinderella Topsy Turvy) joined by guest artists Tara Brown (Bosch), Zane Garcia (Blue Bloods) and Cynthia Zitter (The Fosters), with Rudie and DeCarlo as King and Queen of the Faeries. Music & lyrics are by E. Rudie with Matthew Wrather. Santa Monica Playhouse programs are supported in part by the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission, the Ahmanson Foundation, the Cotkin Family and Playhouse PALS.
