BWW Review: I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT...NOW CHANGE! at Up-Stage Photo BWW 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.

The British Museum Presents New Exhibit DEFACING THE PAST: DAMNATION AND DESECRATION IN IMPERIAL ROME
by Ashlee Latimer - Oct 12, 2016

'Defacing the past: damnation and desecration in imperial Rome' presents coins and other objects that were defaced, either to condemn the memory of deceased Roman emperors or to contest the power of living ones. Images of power have always been used as a medium for propaganda; the power that they convey could backfire if they were used against the authority by which they had been designed and propagated.

I HATE HAMLET, opening April 17, is a wonderful playground somewhere between the Hollywood days of the legendary John Barrymore and today. Directed by Ablan Roblin and Assistant Director Noah Diaz, seasoned actors intertwine the serious with the farcical, the real with the surreal. It's a delicious bit of theater that even those who really do hate Hamlet have to love.
