I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change
Running for more than 5,000 performances in its original off-Broadway incarnation, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change examines the fraught relations between the sexes with tuneful vignettes that track the stages of romance with lighthearted humor. The two-act musical’s four thespians flaunt their acting chops as they take on the roles of more than 20 characters that are all somehow entrenched in the throes of love. Their sterling pipes allow them to belt out songs such as “Men Who Talk and the Women Who Pretend They’re Listening” and “I’ll Call You Soon (Yeah, Right),” which unabashedly unmask the absurdities of dating and the emotional pitfalls of single life. “Marriage Tango” delves into the stresses of tying the knot, and “The Very First Dating Video of Rose Ritz” explores the pain of divorce and “Funerals Are for Dating” shines a mordant light on wintry romance.
Springfield Little Theatre
When the Landers burned in 1920, it could have been the end of the theatre’s 10-year run as one of Springfield’s top vaudeville stages. Instead firefighters from four stations, an asbestos curtain, and a fire-retardant buildup of applause on the wood ensured that the show went on—despite soon switching to the silver screen. Then, in 1970, the historic building began yet another history-making chapter when it became home to the Springfield Little Theatre, which switched the venue’s focus from “talkies” to plays. Today, audiences passing through its lovingly restored Baroque halls take their seats to watch one of the eight productions the SLT puts on every year.
