Join Annie Miller, a romance-obsessed woman, as she prepares for a blind date by telling you all about the screenplay she’s writing.
Should you see it?
Annie is waiting for her blind date, hoping that he turns out to be the Harry to her Sally, the Jack to her Rose, the Hugh Grant to her Julia Roberts, her… well, you get the idea. Along the way, she tells the audience all about her very own romantic screenplay, a film called Love, Love, Love: The Movie, which hilariously hits all the tropes of the genre.
Jessica Fitzpatrick is captivating as a girl who is obsessed with romantic movies to a nearly manic degree. She is so endearing that even though Annie is a bit on the crazy side, I really did find myself hoping that she would find her knight in shining armor someday. After all, aren’t we all a little like Annie, deep down inside? Maybe it’s just me. In the end, Fitzpatrick gives a heartfelt performance that makes Annie a relatable character.
Fitzpatrick has the energy and the acting chops to keep you interested in Annie’s plight throughout the show. She does a great job of embodying all the characters from her screenplay, from the wide-eyed country girl trying to make it big in the city to the smooth gentleman who falls in love with her.
She’s at her most hilarious when warbling out the theme song of Love, Love, Love: The Movie, altering her performance style to suit the needs of a demanding New York Broadway director.
As a romantic comedy fan, I was charmed by Cupidity’s earnestness. Romantic comedy fans are sure to be delighted with Fitzpatrick’s tale of romance.
