Dewey Caddell and the cast of I Don <3 U Ne Mor.
BOTTOM LINE: OMG you will totes <3 this show. LOL! ;)
Meet Ron Thomas, mockingly known as "Ron Tom." Ron, played by Dewey Caddell, is perennially single, hopelessly old-fashioned, and continually clutching his inhaler as he pines for Daliya (Felicia J. Hudson), a co-worker who doesn't know a thing about him. Daliya and Ron are employed by Verizonnet, a tech company that is about to merge with MicroAppleSoft, to form VerizMicroNet, the largest tech firm in the world.
Yet despite his employment, Ron does not have a cell phone, nor does he use email. But Ron is sick of being unconnected and is worried about losing his job as an archivist due to the forthcoming merger. This is the basis for the hysterically fun rock musical comedy I Don <3 U Ne Mor.
The show features fourteen crowd-pleasing musical numbers with energetic music by Frank Grullon and Cathy Thomas and catchy lyrics by Daren Taylor. The cast of eleven sings and dances their hearts out to stellar and detailed choreography.
The musical is smartly infused with light-hearted fun and self-deprecation, while at the same time commenting on our society's over-reliance on technology. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who didn't LOL and totally <3 this show. Winky face!
