Come celebrate Valentine’s Day with Red Herring as we present the Central Ohio premiere of Romance/Romance, a musical comedy of two independent one-acts exploring the themes of love, romance, attraction, identity, and infidelity.

The first act, “The Little Comedy”, tells the tale of a man and woman in 19th century Vienna who assume false personas to escape their aristocratic boredom and then face the complication of having fallen in love while in disguise. The second act, “Summer Share”, tells the contemporary story of two longtime friends who wrestle with their mutual attraction despite being married to others.

“Never say ‘too late’, for falling in love…”
