|Amphibian Stage is back with their first show of 2021, LOVE SUCKS – An Anti-Valentine’s Day Special. Created to make sure all of us who hate Valentine’s Day know we are not alone – the online variety show will take a tongue-in cheek approach to the holiday. Hosted by Broadway veteran, Eric Jon Mahlum, the show will feature tales of bad romance from comics Lauren Davis, Erin Harper, Dante Martinez, MK Paulsen, and Hannah Vaughan, a drag performance from Kylee O’Hara Fatale, and more. Audiences should be ready for anything – except the usual Valentine’s fare of cheap champagne and teddy-bears.
LOVE SUCKS ticket holders will be sent a link to watch the premiere as it streams on YouTube on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 8 pm CST (9 pm EST, 7 pm MST, 6 pm PST). A recorded version will be available after that until 11:59 pm Saturday February 20. Tickets will be $12 and must be purchased in advance at amphibianstage.com or by calling 817-923-3012. Amphibian Stage members will have tickets available (number of tickets dependent on level of membership). These tickets can be reserved online or by phone.
