This musical showcase of love in all its guises started in Raleigh, N.C. in 2000 and has moved around the country with its creator, musician Richard Alwyn, to settle in Brooklyn (but will also take place in The 2011 Brooklyn show - events also will take place in Chicago, Kansas City, Raleigh and Ann Arbor in 2011). More than 150 performers have participated since the first Hangover, from Cat Power to author Rick Moody and the Magnetic Fields.
