The Love Show
The Love Show will transform a former cookie shop in the Port Authority Bus Terminal into a three-month-long pop-up theater and live arts event venue. As one of the city’s main entry points, and one that is located in the heart of The Theater District, the transportation hub is the ideal location for an experience that will immediately immerse travelers in the arts culture of New York. The space will be alive with The Love Show’s original dance and theater performances, the company will also be hosting other performance artists in the community, with artisanal pop-ups, and shows ranging from comedy to magic, puppetry and live music.
When asked why she chose the title Welcome Home, director/choreographer Angela Harriell explained, “The name Welcome Home feels warm and right, as we welcome home New Yorkers returning to their city, and visitors as they depart on their own journeys home from Port Authority. Bringing live performance back, we welcome the audience home to the theater. For the duration of the performance, performers and audience become connected, sharing a moment in an atmosphere of people coming and going.”

About The Love Show:
The Love Show is a theatrical dance company that combines cabaret, ballet, contemporary, rock, comedy and theater into creative performances all over the US and beyond. The Love Show has entertained all audiences, rocking stages from The Brooklyn Museum to The Public’s Shakespeare in The Park. The Love Show has been commissioned to perform original choreography for clients including Banksy, Veuve Clicquot, Vogue Magazine and TNT Drama.
Earlier this year, the company’s last pop-up theater, “Behind the Glass”, also a Chashama residency, brought light, art, dance and theater to both the performers and the public during a very dark time in the Pandemic. This resulted in several mentions in TONY and AM New York, as well as a photo that was published in several international publications, including a spread in the Guardian of triumphs in the face of COVID from around the world, in which The Love Show represented New York and America.
The Love Show has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, PAPER Magazine, TONY, The Guardian, and TDF’s “Meet the Dance Company” video series, and The New York Times sent a reporter to exclusively follow the troupe’s exploits on Bastille Day. The Love Show’s resume includes original performances in Rome, Tokyo, Egypt and Mexico, premiering a cameo piece commissioned by The Public Theater in their run of “Twelfth Night” at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, dancing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and creating exclusive choreographed and directed content for TNT Drama’s season premiere party. “Behind the Glass”, the troupe’s pandemic era storefront pop-up theater, was featured in publications around the globe, including TONY and The Guardian.
As well as being visible from the corridors, the performances will be live streamed on Instagram @theloveshownyc
