It's the "perfect" date night destination during the busy holiday season! One of the longest running Off-Broadway musicals in history, I Love you, You're Perfect, Now Change debuts on the Theatre Jacksonville stage just in time for the holidays!
In a theatrical age of mammoth spectacles and brooding musical dramas I Love you, You're Perfect, Now Change is a rollicking throwback to a nearly extinct theatrical genre: the musical comedy revue. With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts, the show reinvigorates the revue by taking a hilarious and tuneful joyride through the dizzying spectrum of modern male-female relationships.
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as "the relationship" and explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage. It's a very funny tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask, "Say, what are you doing Saturday night?" When I Love you, You're Perfect, Now Change opened off-Broadway, it was hailed by Gannett Newspapers as "Entirely winning! A show for real people about real people." The musical
has been showcased in more than 250 cities worldwide including London, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, Sydney, Seoul, Rio de Janeiro and Johannesburg. In addition to its enormous success, the Off-Broadway production was also the site of 50 marriage proposals!
Our talented cast includes Michael Fritton, Kathy Sanders, Gary Baker, Keisha Marie Gill, Alejandro Rodriguez, and Nikki Spies. The show is directed by Lee Hamby with musical direction by Laura Peden.
