The longest running off-Broadway revue in history has been revised for the 21st century! This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?' The 2018 version features two new songs, revised lyrics and dialogue throughout the show to reflect dating in modern times.
Running time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, plus 1 intermission

“The new, updated version of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, needs to do anything but change. The off-Broadway hit musical, which ran from 1996 through 2008 for a remarkable 5,003 performances, has been revamped to reflect the current marriage of technology and dating, as well as the many ways in which social media and apps subsume love and family. In a rare feat, Tony Award winner Joe DiPietro’s book and lyrics and Jimmy Roberts’ music is as fresh, affecting and delightfully funny as it was when it debuted 21 years ago.”— Iris Wiener, TheatreLife, October 17, 2017
