“There are no gimmicks in this play,” Lockwood reminded. “This play also reminds us we sometimes hurt the people we love. I really want this production to stress a sense of family and the reality of the relationships. The audience will have a good time, but they will also go home with a great message that we make a difference in each other’s lives. It’s important to take care of the relationships you have.”
“What I find the most compelling about ‘Proposals’ are the beautiful and varied depictions of love and relationships in all its stages,” Strauss echoed. “We experience the confusion and excitement of young love, the pain and regret of lost love, and the tender rekindling of reclaimed love.”
The cast includes Catherine A. Collins, Casey Dillon, Franklin Johnson, Ian Manuel, Christina Monroe, Dave Nickel, Jeremy Robbins, and Alicia Walton.
