An award winning, internationally acclaimed, NZ original, 80s rock opera is coming to Centrepoint theatre as the headline act for the Palmy fringe festival this October.

Allergic to Love: Curse of The 80s.
Winner of 3 NZ fringe festival awards including the Centrepoint tour award and recent return from a tour of America and Mexico, this all original, NZ show is set to entertain, to melt faces, break hearts and rock souls!

What would you do if you broke into song at the thought of love? What if you could only sing 80s rock ballads? Well come and witness the Palmy Premiere of this unusual tale of love told by a loud, live, rockband, ready to bring back the 80s!

A brand new, all original musical masterpiece written and performed by Tom Knowles, who only 2 years ago starred in Centrepoint’s production of 'Stag Weekend'. Starring a full live rock band of misfits including Christchurch’s own Jed Parsons and Moses Robbins and Auckland’s, Sam Logan, as they attempt to tell this unusual tale of love; a man who is cursed with breaking into 80s rock ballads at the thought of love.

“Knowles’ voice settles into me like a pollen spore making me itchy to be on my feet dancing.” — Art Murmurs NZ

“As the last chord strikes, the audience clap wildly, a cacophony of sound of cheering and cries for an encore.” — Art Murmurs NZ

“Provoking the audience into fits of laughter as they perform. These artists deal with what it is to be human.” - Theatreview

"Allergic to Love – One hour of original songs that could have been written 30-40 years ago, but with a sense of humor and goofiness that the Beatles displayed almost 50 years ago. If you needed proof that Kiwis can rock, this show is it." - San Diego Consumers Action Network (C.A.N)
