I Love My Wife features book and lyrics by Michael Stewart and music composed and arranged by Cy Coleman. The musical, according to press notes, is a "dynamic, irreverent look at relationships and marriage during the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Grappling with the rapidly shifting spirit of the time, two New Jersey couples consider merging their marriages in this hilarious hit musical from Broadway’s 1977 season."
Each show in the Mufti series plays five performances: Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2:30 and 8 PM, and Sunday at 2:30 and 7:30 PM. Audience discussions will follow all matinees.
