BWW Review: I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT...NOW CHANGE! at Up-StageBWW Review: I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT...NOW CHANGE! at Up-Stage
by Lindsey Rusling - Nov 4, 2019

I Love You, You're Perfect....Now Change! is an upbeat, Off Broadway musical revue that ran for more than 5000 performances from 1996-2008. Traditionally set in New York in the late-20th Century this production is an updated version for 2018. The show takes us through numerous vignettes that depict life in terms of love and romance. The themes are glimpses into the reality of life and love - the Manhattan dating scene, mid-life suburban marriage and old age and all the humour, hurt and beautifully ragged emotion it entails. Jimmy Roberts' perky music with book and adorably humble lyrics by Joe DiPietro are cute, funny, poignant and totally relatable. It holds up a mirror with a gentle, warm and charming hand and encourages us to laugh at ourselves. (more...)
