Love Bomb - A Play With Music
"What's the next song, that angry electric one?"
LOVE BOMB was selected by the Firehall Arts Centre to make it's premiere in their 2015 season and although interrupted by Covid it has been touring ever since. The production has just completed a nationwide tour with 13 sows in 2023 and is now available for touring throughout 2024/25.
The play was nominated for 3 Ovation Awards by the Applause Musical Society and earned the awards for "Outstanding Production, Small Ensemble" and "Outstanding Lead Performance - Female".
In LOVE BOMB a concert of emotion rips through Justine’s first performance in years, and all because of one uninvited guest her music takes on a life of its own. The team behind the creation of this new musical: Book & lyrics by Meghan Gardiner (Dissolve), music & additional lyrics Steve Charles (Traces, Chelsea Hotel). Directed by Reneé Iaci (Dissolve, Frozen) and developed with dramaturgy by Melissa Poll.
LOVE BOMB now stars shameless hussy collaborator Daune Campbell, with Sara Vicruck, Amanda Testini and Melissa Kahan alternating in the other role. The original creative team included Drew Facey (Set, Costumes) and Itai Erdel (Lighting).
