Skylight Music Theatre Presents I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE
Skylight Music Theatre presents the musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change February 3 - 19, 2017 in the beautiful Cabot Theatre at the Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway, Milwaukee, Wis.
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change features a book and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis, Nice Work If You Can Get It) and music by Jimmy Roberts (The Velveteen Rabbit, The Thing About Men).
The original Off-Broadway production of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change opened in 1996 and ran for over 5,000 performances, making it the second-longest Off-Broadway musical in history. The New York Times described it as "witty, funny, as good as it gets" and Variety called it "smartly conceived . . . catchy tunes and witty lyrics." The show was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is a tuneful and clever revue celebrating love in all its glory. The show humorously reveals the truths and myths of relationships -- from dating and waiting to love and marriage, and on through the agonies and triumphs of in-laws, newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the senior set. With an upbeat showtune score flavored with rhythm & blues, doo-wop, jazz and more, it is a crowd-pleaser just in time for Valentine's Day.
Returning to Skylight Music Theatre as stage director and choreographer is Pam Kriger, who has directed and/or choreographed over 60 performances at Skylight including White Christmas, Fiddler on the Roof and Once on This Island.
"This show brings a fresh and funny twist to the glories and challenges we have all faced in relationships," said Kriger. "It is both amusing and touching and will resonate with people at all stages of life."
Making his return to Skylight Music Theatre is Jack Forbes Wilson as music director. Wilson has performed in numerous Skylight Music Theatre cabarets and last worked with Kriger as music director for Skylight's Lady, Be Good.
The revue features a versatile ensemble of well-known performers who have delighted Skylight audiences in many previous roles and includes Doug Clemons, Karen Estrada, Kathryn Hausman and Rick Pendzich.
Skylight's Interim Artistic Director Ray Jivoff said that the revue is a showcase for Skylight's focus on creating meaningful connections, not only between characters on stage but with the audience as well.
"We have put together a terrific team to create what we think will be the perfect pick-me-up for cold and wintery February weather," said Jivoff. "The show has incredible performers, lots of laughs and lots of heart - a sweet way to celebrate Valentine's Day."
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is sponsored by Johnson Bank.
