The swingin' '70s were a nonstop, hedonistic thrill ride. Marriages were open, key parties were de rigueur, love was American Style — everybody got laid all the time and twice on Sunday. But all revolutions come to an end, especially sexual ones. The Michael Stewart and Cy Coleman musical I Love My Wife takes you back to the final spurts of the musky '70s with a jazzy tale of wife-swapping, sex and romance, and explores how maybe all that free love came with a hidden cost — and we ain't talkin' about herpes. New Line Theatre presents I Love My Wife at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (September 30 through October 23) at the Washington University South Campus Theatre (6501 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; 314-534-1111 or www.newlinetheatre.com). Tickets are $10 to $20.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 30. Continues through Oct. 23, 2010
