March 23 — 2 hours, Mervyn Kaufman,”The Love Life” is a wry send-up of a longstanding tradition, in some parts of our land, that empowers a man to take on multiple marriage partners legally.
Merv Kaufman is a long-ago graduate of the UCLA Theater Arts Dept. He came to New York to establish a career in publishing—books and magazines— but ultimately refocused his talents on playwriting. He’s enjoyed seeing some of his work read at various sites, in New York and elsewhere, and looks forward to someday seeing his work actually performed. By real actors!
