We know that singing actor Greta Oglesby has earth-shaking vocal prowess, as she demonstrated in such productions as "Caroline, or Change" and "The Amen Corner" at the Guthrie and "Black Nativity" at Penumbra Theatre.

We also know what she has spot-on comic timing ("The Sunshine Boys" and "In the Red and Brown Water," both at the Guthrie). But we did not know that Oglesby also is something of a romantic.

The Ivey Award winner is headlining an evening of "Readings and Reflections on Love" at United Theological Seminary. The Tues., Feb. 5, event will also include singer Dennis Spears and pianist Sanford Moore on piano.

Architect Joan Soranno, who designed the Bigelow Chapel venue where the event will take place, will also read alongside seminary board member Benjamin Oehler. The event will celebrate the many flavors of love.

7:30 p.m. Tue., United Theological Seminary, 3000 5th St., NW, New Brighton. Tickets are $15.
