Held over for two bonus performances - FEB 27 & 28 at 8PM - I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change at Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, CA

WHEN: FEBRUARY 20, 21, 27 & 28 AT 8 PM, FEBRUARY 22 AT 2:30 PM

From cringing first dates to bedtime shenanigans, this hilarious musical revue charts the highs and lows of the dating game. A collage of quirky snapshots turns the mirror on our own love lives, offering a sneaky peek beyond the altar and beneath the bedroom comforter. A bold comic design complements Jimmy Roberts’ innovative score and Joe DiPietro’s witty dialogue, with plenty of laughs and a few tears too. The show had been a long–running hit off-Broadway until 2008 when it closed after over 5000 performances.

Starring Lindsey Mixon, Shaina Zalma, Marla McClure, Ray Buffer, Paul Rorie and David Meinke, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change opens at the dawn of humankind with these six actors in hooded robes. They talk of woman. They talk of man. And they immediately realize there’s going to be a problem. The action zips ahead thousands of years to an array of eternally resilient singles trying to connect. As the characters age they sing about babies, car trips with relatives and entering middle to geriatric age.

"I am very fortunate to have such a talented, well-rounded cast." says director, Ray Buffer. "Each cast member gets an opportunity to shine" he continues. "We are thrilled to be held over. We have seen a lot of return audience members who come back bringing new friends. Our audiences have been asking - will we add more performances, and now we can tell them that we have." Buffer concludes, "As one audience member proclaimed to me in the lobby, San Pedro has a hit on its hands!"

“Its Seinfeld set to music,” said the Star-Ledger of this Off-Broadway hit, while Fox TV called it, “lively and funny,” and Gannett Newspapers declared it “the most entertaining show on or off Broadway!” With six actors playing over 40 roles, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change reveals everything you’ve secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives, and in-laws, but were afraid to admit!

Directed and Produced by Ray Buffer with Music Direction and Piano by Jeanette Louis-Yaryan, and Viola by Adrian Wong; Costume Design by Kara McLeod; Choreography by Marla McClure; Lighting Design by Richard Taylor; Set Design by Nathan Schroeder, Mercie Maes and Brooke Corpus; and Sound Design by Denise Fuller.
