The Old Globe has announced the cast and creative team for the World Premiere of Nobody Loves You, a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Gaby Alter and book & lyrics by Itamar Moses set in the world of reality television. Directed by Michelle Tattenbaum with music direction by Vadim Feichtner and choreography by Mandy Moore, Nobody Loves You will run May 9 - June 17. Preview performances are May 9 - 16 with opening night on Thursday, May 17 at 8:00 pm.
Filled with tuneful pop songs, Nobody Loves You takes audiences on a hilarious behind-the-scenes ride through reality television and into real life. When Jeff, 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. In a world where every kiss is staged for the cameras, can two people find a real connection?
The cast of Nobody Loves You features Jenni Barber (Jenny), Alex Brightman (Chazz, Dominic, Evan), Heath Calvert (Byron), Kate Morgan Chadwick (Samantha, Bonnie), Adam Kantor (Jeff), Kelsey Kurz (Christian, Steve), Nicole Lewis (Tanya, Nina, Zenobia) and Lauren Molina (Megan).
The creative team includes Michael Schweikardt (Scenic Design), Emily Pepper (Costume Design), Tyler Micoleau (Lighting Design), Paul Peterson (Sound Design), Stephanie Klapper, CSA (Casting) and Diana Moser (Stage Manager).
