“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” one of Off-Broadway’s longest-running musicals, is coming to Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts for one night only on Friday, May 13. Tickets are available at www.columbiatheatre.org or at 985-543-4371.
HAMMOND – One of Off-Broadway’s most popular and longest running musicals, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” will appear on the stage of Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts for one show only on Friday, May 13.
Presented by the Jefferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS), the production begins at 7:30 p.m. in the downtown Hammond theatre. Due to adult humor and adult situations, the production is not recommended for children.
Columbia Theatre Interim Director Kenneth Boulton is excited about the performance.
“This production takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as ‘the relationship,’” said Boulton. “Through musical numbers and vignettes that range from heartwarming to outrageous to hilarious, ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change’ takes the audience on a journey through the ups and downs and everything in between that make up the modern-day dating game, marriage and beyond.”
The production has played more than 4,500 performances, surpassing the Broadway runs of such musicals as “My Fair Lady,” “Annie,” “Oklahoma!,” “Grease,” “Man of La Mancha,” “42nd Street,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “The Producers,” and “Hello Dolly!.”
Tickets are $36 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by phone at (985) 543-4371. Patrons may also get tickets online at www.columbiatheatre.org.
