I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change


Directed by Dave Campbell
Starring Debbie Collins, Geoffrey Tyler, Jeremy Crittenden and Jenny Weisz



The second longest running Off-Broadway musical in history condenses easily to: ‘Everything you ever secretly wanted to know about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives, and in-laws, but were too afraid to admit!’ Featuring soaring harmonies, hysterical vignettes, and serious introspection, this four person powerhouse has brought people to their feet around the world. Come prepared to laugh and cry, this show holds up the mirror to our loveable, laughable, and downright crazy behavior!
