The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park production of the Off Broadway hit, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change closes in the Thompson Shelterhouse Theatre on Dec. 30 after a one-week extension. The show officially opened Nov. 9.
Although the extension is sold out, tickets are still available for certain Dec 20 and 22 performances.
Billed as an "early Valentine," the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park production features "the triumphs and trials of love, marriage and family" that have become familiar to New York audiences during the show's four year run Off-Broadway. A cast of two men and two women portray "more than 50 different characters" in I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, which features "every possible vignette in the spectrum of male/female romantic relationships."
The cast includes Heather Ayers ( Forbidden Broadway Strikes Back), Brad Little (The Phantom of the Opera), Ginette Rhodes (both female roles in New York's I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, ) and Jamison Stern, (the Playhouse's The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged), and in New York's Genesius Guild production of Love! Valour! Compassion!).
Cincinnati native Dennis Courtney returns to direct and choreograph I Love You and the rest of the creative team comprises set designer Felix E. Cochren, costume designer David Kay Mickelsen, lighting designer Betsy Adams, musical director Louis F. Goldberg and stage manager Emily F. McMullen. Tickets range from $35 - $43, depending on day and seat location. For tickets or information call the box office at (513) 421-3888 or toll-free in Ohio, Ky. and Ind. at (800) 582-3208.
