Dixon Place Hosts: The Love Curriculum by Brian Mulay
About This Show
The Love Curriculum, a cabaret of music, explores the experiences and personal love story of principle performer Brian Mulay. It is a humorous and poignant examination of the emotions and phases common to all of us in our pursuit of love, communicating our human needs and desires and how we choose to act upon them or not. Touching on the ways we meet and communicate, and unconventional arrangements such as open relationships and polyamory, The Love Curriculum includes singers, dancers and musicians who accompany Brian through his entertaining curriculum. This cabaret features music from classic and contemporary musical theatre and even some pop songs by composers such as Stephen Sondheim, Sara Bareilles, Bock & Harnick, Maury Yeston, Stephen Schwartz, and Alanis Morissette.
“Who doesn’t grow up hearing fairy tales while dreaming of finding true love and ‘happily ever after?’,” states creator Brian Mulay. “Books, Hollywood movies, and Broadway musicals often cloud young minds with a rose-colored look at how real-life romance can play out. In reality, the lessons we learn as we stumble through our unique ‘love curriculums’ can be quite different. The Love Curriculum reveals us all in the same class learning the same lessons, but often at different times and in a different order.”
