I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change is an award-winning musical comedy that explores the hilarious yet poignant view of the modern relationship, from the ups and downs of single life, first dates, marriage, children and even dating in the twilight years. The story cleverly explores everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.
Presented in a revue style series of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships. For many years it was the 2nd longest running off-Broadway show (The Fantastics still hold the record).
Show will be cast with 6 actors (3m/3f). The characters present vignettes as a wide variety of characters. Characters represented range in age from 20’ish to 70’ish. Character actors, who can sing, are strongly urged to audition.
VOCAL RANGES AND CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS
For the female singers soprano range (low A to top Bb) and alto range (low F# to Db). The male parts are baritone/tenor ranges (middle C to high G#).
Because of the vignette scenes – there are not traditional character descriptions for this show, and actors can be chosen for the various scenes based on their acting and vocal strengths. The show is often described as “Seinfeld set to music.”
Performance dates are February 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons beginning December 1.
