Description

Modern Love marks the third play by Anthony Mora to premiere at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre. The play, a dark comedy, about film, sex, power and the dividing line between art and reality, follows one of Hollywood’s most successful blockbuster producers, whose obsession with his directorial debut takes him down a dark, precarious path.

Mora serves as the playwright-in-residence at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre. In 2006, the theater premiered two plays by Anthony, P.O.P. The Principles of Perfection and BANG! A Love Story, which Mora adapted for the stage from his controversial, award winning novel. Scenes from Bang! featuring Linda Cardellini were performed at the Acme Theater in Los Angeles and The American Place Theater in New York.
