I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change is the second-longest running off-Broadway musical in theater history.

The beloved show follows the highs and lows of first dates, first loves, marriages, babies, in-laws, and growing old together, paying tribute to those who have loved and lost, and to those who have dared to ask someone out on a date.

The show was first performed off-Broadway in 1996. Over the years, DiPietro and Roberts have updated lyrics in the show’s numbers to make the production more relevant to today’s pop culture and technology-driven environme

I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals www.concordtheatricals.com

Jason Robert Brown’s popular musical The Last Five Years tells the story of two twenty-something New Yorkers who fall head over heels in love over the course of a five year relationship. Jamie, an up-and-coming writer, struggles to balance his sudden success with his increasingly tumultuous love life, while Cathy, an aspiring actress, deals with the frustrations of her own stalled career while watching her husband from the sidelines. In a city where professional and personal passions collide, navigating the waters of love and matrimony can sometimes prove to be a lot to handle.
