In the Name of Love is a musical mosaic about the elusive search for love and the myriad ways we screw it up.

In a series of musical stories—eight individual songs and four extended musical-scenes (“mini-musicals”)—the cast of three women and two men portray characters both fictional and factual, historical and hysterical; disparate, desperate people ranging from Neanderthals to your next-door neighbors, all of them reaching for romance.
