Producing Artistic Director Chuck Tobin today announced the July 17 opening of the Off-Broadway musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change at Saint Michael's Playhouse in Colchester, Vermont. 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) and is directed by Keith Andrews who has directed numerous SMP productions (Spamalot, Young Frankenstein, Million Dollar Quartet).

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is a comic celebration of the bewildering mystery of life known as L-O-V-E. This insightful and tuneful musical revue humorously reveals the truths and myths of relationships -- from dating, 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. Producing Artistic Director Chuck Tobin says, "With its upbeat score featuring pop, doo-wop, jazz and more, this show is perfect entertainment for a Vermont mid-summer evening out."
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change has performed in over 280 cities around the globe including New York, Toronto, London, Tel Aviv, Mexico City, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Budapest, Sydney, Prague, Seoul, Milan, Rio de Janeiro, and Johannesburg. 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 longest Off-Broadway musical comedy revue in history. The show was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.

In addition to director Keith Andrews the creative team includes Tim Case (scenic design), Annmarie Duggan (lighting design), KJ Gilmer (costume design), Terry Lawrence (properties design, and Caisa Sanburg (sound design).
