Lovejoy’s favorite line from a Trap Door production:
“You can go to hell, Dr. Babyass!” —Sigelius, The White Plague
David Lovejoy’s scintillating and multi-faceted Chevalier, fittingly, seems both of the world of the court and apart from it. Lovejoy (who uses the pronouns “ze/hir/hirs”) brings an almost zen-like quality at times to the role, but also imbues the Chevalier with a rock-ribbed moral conscience.
Kerry Reid, The Chicago Tribune
As d’Éon, the understated David Lovejoy is a block of noble stability in a world gone haywire.
Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader
Lovejoy brings a sense of earnestness and grit to d’Eon that makes the consequences of peoples’ casual lack of compassion much more serious.–
Jacob David, Around the Town Chicago
