Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More
Award winning San Francisco playwright and journalist Beth Soloway teams up with her daughter, actress Lisa Soloway, for the world premiere of Men Who Have Fallen Madly In and Out of Love with Me at the Off-Market Theater.
A series of romantic encounters between one woman and several different men who leap from beginning to non-sequitur end, Men Who Have Fallen Madly In and Out of Love with Me follows Woman (Lisa Soloway) as a toilet-paper-holder inspector who pursues flawless love with a myriad of would-be suitors, including a symphony conductor, an airline pilot, a customer representative, and a behavioral medicine doctor among others, all played by local improv star Chris Hayes.
Lisa returns to the stage with Men Who Have Fallen Madly In and Out of Love With Me after a seven-year hiatus from acting. She was a company member of LA’s Open Fist Theater and a founding member of the Syzygy Theater Company, also in LA.
Soloway, who directs and produces this project, won the coveted Lawrence and Lee Playwriting Award for her first full-length, Breathing, penned an award-winning historical novel, The Great Deception, and was honored by the Chicago Daily News for her essay on racial integration.
Chris Hayes, a founding member of Crisis Hopkins and a producer of the SF Improv Festival, rounds out the cast, playing all eight male characters. And, keeping it all in the family, Lisa’s husband, Michael Resnick, who worked as a television sound designer with CBS and FX, returns to theater as the project’s video/sound/light designer.
