"I Love You, You're Perfect... Now Change" presented at Empire Arts Center

Back by popular demand: Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.

Crimson Creek Players and original cast members Deb Berger, Jared Kinney, Darin Kerr and Misti Koop present the fan favorite musical, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” at the Empire Arts Center one week only, Aug. 5-9 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinée on Aug. 9 at 2 p.m.

A comedic musical written by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts, this celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as "the relationship."

Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car, and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set.

This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask, "Say, what are you doing Saturday night?"

This show promises to take you on a roller-coaster ride of laughter, tears and sheer entertainment.” Off-Broadway's phenomenal longest-running musical celebrates the modern-day suburban mating game. Audiences fill the theatre with laughter as the cast explores the joys of dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives, and in-laws.

Don’t miss an incredible evening of entertainment. This is the perfect show to bring your girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, wives, friends or blind dates. It promises to be the “best night out” this year.
