About the Show

I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE is a musical revue about our need for relationships. From the foolishness of self-promotion in dating to the fracas and calm of marriage, the cast presents a series of sketches and songs.

You’ll meet odd priests, an insecure couple wishing they were more attractive, two guys named Bob on great dates…and their dates who are on awful dates, a man dragged to an emotional movie against his will, a romantic lasagna cook, two bitter parents, an unusual insurance salesman, a woman awaiting a phone call, two pizza delivery men, a bride, a groom, tough love counselors, a father transformed by baby talk, parents who would like to have sex if it weren’t for interruptions from their children, an “expert driver” and his panicked family, a wife timing a meal while her husband watches football, a man waiting for his wife to buy shoes, a woman in line for the ladies’, a settled couple sharing breakfast and contemplating life, a woman creating a dating profile after her husband leaves her, and a man and woman considering life after their spouses have died (don’t worry, that one’s charming).

Due to language and some content, I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE is not suitable for young audiences.
