It’s internationally acclaimed Andreas Beckett’s quest to find the meaning of love-one day, and one lady, at a time.

And Louis Fantasia of NPR/KCRW calls it “one of the warmest, most endearing one-man shows to hit the stage…well worth seeing.” Andreas Beckett’s work includes stage, film, television and opera.
