From Press Release:
The ABCs of Love with Adult Baby Cupid is the absurdly literal struggle of a woman making sense of possibly outdated romantic ideals and their impact on her career…which happens to be Cupid’s assistant in a traveling romantic advice show that’s been protested from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Join the doxed and glitter-bombed Kristen Mueller-Heaslip, playing herself, as she invokes Adult Baby Cupid to answer your questions about love and romance in the post #MeToo world at the Tarragon Theatre Solo Room during the Toronto Fringe July 5-15.
Written by Mueller-Heaslip and Adam Bailey, The ABCs of Love takes the popular character of Adult Baby Cupid, which Bailey created for the Lunacy Cabaret in Toronto, and gives him his first Fringe appearance. Mr. Bailey has created or directed several touring Fringe hits including The Life Henri (Outstanding New Play, Outstanding Production – Now Magazine, 5 Stars – Edmonton Fringe, Best of the Best – Saskatoon Fringe), Adam Bailey is on Fire (Patron’s Pick – Toronto Fringe), Skunkweed (Patron’s Pick – Toronto Fringe) and The Assassination of Robert Ford: Dirty Little Coward (Best of Fringe – Toronto). Mueller-Heaslip, who’s musical career includes opera credits such as Elvira in Ipuritani (Opera in Concert), winning the 2007 Eckhardt-Grammate National Music Competition, and being the lead singer of the Parkdale Revolutionary Orchestra, joins Bailey after working with him on the 2012 Fringe hit, The Enchanted Crackhouse. Their zany take on love and Romance is sure to spark lots of conversation at this years Fringe tent, ensuring another must see show from Still Your Friend.
