Theater Review: The journey of love expressed in LALT performance

-A A +A

Musical > Series of vignettes first performed off-Broadway in 1996

By The Staff

From the nervous first date to the comfortable romance of an old marriage, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” is a musical journey of love through a series of 20 vignettes both raucously hilarious and, occasionally, endearingly touching.
Each one of the vignettes explores a different aspect of romance, beginning with two couples nervously preparing for the first date as they primp and dress, wondering what the night will bring. The first act continues on from there with a mostly younger cast testing the murky waters of the dating scene and the old differences between men and women. The final short scene sends one couple down the aisle and on their way to marriage, making way for a largely older cast in the second half to examine everything from parenthood, growing old and even finding romance in the later years in life.
The best part of a musical of this nature is seeing each cast member given a chance to shine. Each vignette stands alone, although it builds on the theme of the previous scenes, so a new cast steps onto the stage with a new set of characters and different musical styles.
