Love the Struggle feat. Damon Daunno, Amber Gray, Grace McLean & Margo Seibert
Love The Struggle is a new musical inspired by the lives, loves & writings of twentieth–century French philosophers, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, who fell madly in love but rejected marriage as too confining. Instead, they committed to a pact of “essential love” that allowed them each to take “contingent” lovers, so long as they told each other everything about their contingent loves. The show follows the couple as their erotically charged writings draw the world’s attention, challenging conventional notions of love, freedom and gender roles, while the contingent lovers grow increasingly insistent on testing the strength of their bond to one other. This special Joe’s Pub performance, presented in collaboration with Maestra, will feature a narrated concert of song highlights from the show.
