Modern Luv

If the rule of thumb is that you wait three days to call a girl, how long must you wait to send her a friend request on Facebook? “You can’t meet a nice girl and friend her at 3 a.m.” So says Mark Siano, the man best known for producing eclectic variety shows everywhere from El Gaucho to Re-bar. “You look desperate, you look creepy. If you become friends with her later, that’s okay, but you still can’t ‘like’ the photo of her wearing a low-cut dress, because that’s creepy, too.” Such are the issues that Siano and friends address in Modern Luv, a satire on romance in the social networking era, featuring original music by Siano, sketch comedy, and dance. If you’ve ever Googled your crush’s name or sent a text message during a date, songs like “Up in Your Inbox” and “Leave Your Phone Alone” are sure to sound familiar. Get ready to LOL. ERIKA HOBART
