Theatre Brookhaven Presents “Triumph of Love”

This article appeared in a July 2016 issue of the student newsletter.

Synopsis by Musical Theatre International

Theatre students at Brookhaven will present Triumph of Love July 13-24, 2016. An adaptation of the classic comedy, Triumph of Love is full of deception, gender confusions and all the complexities of l'amour — revealing the beauty, absurdities and bittersweet nature of love.

The chamber musical tells the story of Princess Leonide and the handsome Agis who, along with their hilarious "henchmen,” become lost on the messy path to love. Princess Leonide loves Agis, who unfortunately is planning to kill her but unknowingly falls in love with her. All of this happens only after Agis discovers Princess Leonide is not a male student, as her original disguise suggested — a disguise that served convincing enough for another woman to fall in with her. All this fun and we've not yet made it to intermission! The riotous romp only gains momentum as multiple stories of swift infatuation come to a head for our cast of characters.

Audiences will be engrossed with the sexy repartee, comical buffoonery and unexpected tenderheartedness in Triumph of Love. This tongue-in-cheek comedy shows us that love truly knows no limits!
