Ivoryton: The much loved musical comedy I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts has played more than 5.000 performances, has been translated into more than dozen languages and produced the world over and now opens at The Ivoryton Playhouse on September 25.
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship”. From dating and waiting to love and marriage; from 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, and to those who have dared to ask “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”
“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change goes through your funny bone and straight to your heart!” said Jacqui Hubbard, Executive Director “You’ll fall head over heels for this hilarious musical comedy about that terribly wonderful, absolutely crazy thing called love!”
Christopher Sutton will be directing and starring in this production. Christopher was supposed to have been joined on stage by his beautiful wife, Lynn Philistine, but the arrival of the newest member of their family, a bouncing baby boy, Dylan, has necessitated a change in plans! The cast includes Ivoryton favorite Sheila Coyle*; Holly Holcombe* who was last in Ivoryton as a student at the Hartt School in a production of A Woman of a Certain Age; and Michael Brian Dunn* who will be making his Ivoryton debut. Musical direction is by Logan Medland, costumes by Kari Crowther, set design by Tony Andrea and lights by Tate Burmeister.
