    :

    Loneliness pervades the story of this long-distance relationship. The two main characters only know each other by chance when the male salesman tries to sell music supplies to a female piano teacher. Their phone relationship develops to the point where meeting is inevitable, but will the meeting meet the expectations of each other’s fantasy? It’s interesting to look back on a story like this before Facebook, Skype, email, the internet. It’s interesting to compare long distance relationships today and 30 years ago. And yet, all of today’s technological advances still are no substitute for human contact and what it means to really live with someone, flaws and all. The show is marked by colorful character portraits described by Joe and one of his signature introductory monologues.
