UTC Theatre Company invites you to experience the exhilaration and anxiety of relationships in the crowd-pleasing musical I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change on April 8-12 at 7:30 p.m. with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on April 12. The performance will be in UTC’s Dorothy Hackett Ward Theatre, in UTC’s Fine Arts Center.This off-Broadway hit by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts rides the rollercoaster of romance with such familiar types as the sloppy single guy, the career-driven single woman, the new parents who have forgotten how to speak to adults, the sex-deprived married couple, and the rambunctious senior couple.
“Sure the show has some deep and poignant things to say about relationships, but it is really just a lot of fun. Music, dance, and jokes are blended with tender scenes, but the show never drags. It just zips through the stages of romance from the first date to the golden years,” said Steve Ray, the director of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.
The cast includes Trevor Denney, Cricket Glenn, Garrett Henson, Gregory Jackson, Katelin Klepper, Trevor Miles, Erin Skelley, and Courtney Tucker. The production also includes Anne Sharpe, Stage Manager; Joseph Ellison, Assistant Stage Manager; Tim Hinck, Music Director; Lindsay Fussell, Choreographer; Adam Miecielica, Scene Designer; Stephanie Henderson, Costume Designer; and John Burgess, Lighting Designer/Technical Director.
“This cast is going to shine,” says Ray. “They are each very talented, but they are also funny. Tim Hinck is doing an amazing job as Music Director and Lindsay Fussell’s choreography makes this musical sparkle.”
