OMG - THIS SHOW IS FABULOUS! The talent under the Direction of David A. Blair and Musical Direction of Stephen Hulsey is AMAZING.

This was our first time seeing this particular musical and we felt like we were watching it OFF BROADWAY or up in...continued

THIS WAS A GREAT SHOW!!! THE FOUR ACTORS HAVE GREAT CHEMISTRY, AND THE MUSIC AND SONGS WERE OUTSTANDING. I CAN SEE WHY THIS SHOW WAS THE 2ND LONGEST OFF BROADWAY SHOW. I RECOMMEND THIS SHOW!

The venue was tiny but nice. The musical was good and acting was very good. Story was a bit risqué and fun.

Description

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change! is one of Off-Broadway’s longest-running musicals.  It played for a phenomenal 12 years — historic for an Off-Broadway musical and second only to the run of The Fantasticks.

Celebrating the modern-day suburban mating game, the musical reveals every secret thought you’ve ever had about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit. During its Off Broadway run, _I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change! _inspired several men from the audience to make on-stage proposals. In all cases, the brides-to-be happily accepted as the audience roared with approval.
