Producing Artistic Director Chuck Tobin has announced the July 17 opening of the Off-Broadway musical revue I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change at St. Michael’s Playhouse in Colchester.

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change features a book and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis, Nice Work If You Can Get It) and music by Jimmy Roberts (The Velveteen Rabbit, The Thing About Men) and is directed by Keith Andrews who has directed numerous St. Michael’s Playhouse productions (Spamalot, Young Frankenstein, Million Dollar Quartet).

Performances begin on July 17 at St. Michael’s Playhouse with evening performances July 17-20 and 23-27 at 8 p.m. and matinee performances July 20 and 27 at 2 p.m.


I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change is a comic celebration of the bewildering mystery of life known as L-O-V-E. This insightful and tuneful musical revue humorously reveals the truths and myths of relationships — from dating, to love and marriage, and on through the agonies and triumphs of in-laws, newborns and trips in the family car. Tobin said, “With its upbeat score featuring pop, doo-wop, jazz and more, this show is perfect entertainment for a Vermont mid-summer evening out.”

The original Off-Broadway production of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change opened in 1996 and ran for more than 5,000 performances, making it the longest Off-Broadway musical comedy revue in history. The show was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.


I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change features a versatile cast of actor/comedian/singers Chris Collins-Pisano, Caitlin Mesiano, Jayne Ng, and David Rossetti.  In addition to director Keith Andrews the creative team includes Tim Case (scenic design), Annmarie Duggan (lighting design), KJ Gilmer (costume design), Terry Lawrence (properties design and Caisa Sanburg (sound design).


Remaining mainstage plays of the 72nd Season are I Love You You’re Perfect Now Change, and Laughter on the 23rd Floor.
