Fan Forensics – Is it Love, Love Love?

How the best laid plans can go astray. OK – my plans weren’t that firm. Since I first saw the tweet that Richard Armitage was an admirer of Arthur Miller’s The Price, I’ve been taking my time writing a post about the play and why he might rank that one high on his Miller list. Then today, with the post unfinished, opportunity seemed to knock with the news that @RCArmitage liked the Roundabout Theater on Twitter , which, it turns out, is producing The Price this next season.

What I was hoping for was a good discussion in comments about Armitage and The Price. Didn’t happen. (Hey- there’s still time)

What I did get was an example of fan forensics at its best, and the enticing, exciting speculation that Richard Armitage might be on ( or really off-) Broadway, much sooner.

Here’s what the commenters, fans and even I came up with:

Roundabout is putting on Love, Love Love in September 2016. (REALLY SOON). It’s a transplant from London.

@RCArmitage is following Roundabout, and the director of the production Michael Mayer. These are his two most recent follows

The play takes place when Beatlemania was in effect in 1967, and deals with two baby boomers ( just the right age for Armitage to play).

The Beatles? Guitars? This:

In the past, Richard Armitge has given us hints of his next projects with his follows, and this case, his hashtag is a possible clue #Nextgigisagig

Thanks to all the commenters and off blog friends who put this together in a flash. And thanks to @RCArmitage, who followed on Twitter, at just the right time.

Very exciting. A bit speculative ( not that speculative – no cast announced yet).

But, if you want to talk about The Price, and what might make it appeal to Richard Armitage, – please chime in here where you can also witness the fan forensics on your own.

    • Not likely to be both of those two – but if this is happening, I think it is separate and apart from the Yael Farber old play promise, and so, we may have two on stage performances to look forward to.
