MEET OUR TEAM

Joanne Mosconi-Piano, Writer/Director/Producer

From the director and writer of the hit Off Broadway show:  Marry, F*** or Kill, Joanne Mosconi is thrilled to be bringing her new Los Angeles play:  “You Love That I’m NOT Your Wife” to her home town, New York City! “I wrote You Love That I'm NOT Your Wife  to explore what modern day love in Los Angeles looks like. Los Angeles is a character in this script, as this play could not take place in any other city. No one comes to La La Land to fall in love, as Los Angeles is arguably the most lonely, non-committed city in the world. People move to Los Angeles to chase "the dream". The characters in this play are very much influenced by this, as well as the city's abundance of beauty, glamour, wealth, consistent sunshine and amount of options. Although this is not an autobiographical piece, some characters were based on real life experiences. The ten characters in this play are all very different, but they are bound together by one thing- their need for love and the fear they experience when they are not receiving it. This causes them to act in ways they never expected. These are insatiable, crazy, complex, but lovable characters all yearning to be understood and wanted.” www.theperformingartscoach.com
