Fourth Room Skewers Valentines Day
Fourth Room Theatre presented an evening of piano and song dedicated to the misery, insanity, heartbreak, betrayal, boredom, loss, grief, unrequited passion, obsession, creepiness and sadism that comprise the dark side of Hallmark’s favorite holiday. The event was held February 12, 2012 at the Gilbert Street Piano Lounge, Iowa City.
“Valentines day lovers and haters alike! Grab your platonic buddy you’re secretly in love with…or your friend who back-stabbed you and stole your girl..or a picture of your ex boyfriend who stomped on your heart (and some darts)…or just your best friends that you like to have fun with…and come celebrate how much LOVE SUCKS. (Happy, lovey sweethearts also welcome.)”
F*ck Love featured songs by C.Lo Green, George Michael, Stephen Sondheim, Adele, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Burt Bacharach, Weird All Yankovic, Leonard Cohen, Chess the Musical and many others.
Performers included K. Michael Moore, Matthew James, Bryant Duffy, Ottavia De Luca, Kate Thompson, Mary Drexler, Jeffrey Allen Mead, Josh Sazon and Angie Toomsen. Piano pounding by: Jeffrey Allen Mead, Josh Sazon, Mary Drexler
