The Los Angeles production of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change closed one week early, playing its final performance Mother's Day, May 9, instead of May 16 as previously announced. The musical revue that follows a gallery of hopeful heterosexuals on their quest for love reopened at West Hollywood's Coronet Theatre Oct. 7, 1998 after two successful runs at the Laguna Playhouse.
Following Perfect/Change will be the Howard Crabtree revue, When Pigs Fly, previewing June 17 with an opening June 26. When Pigs Fly tells the tale of Howard (a character not unlike Mr. Crabtree), who is in charge of putting together an over-the-top revue but finds himself going over hurdles and combating negative attitudes. Despite a disbelieving guidance counselor, Howard's show goes on with more than fifteen original musical numbers with five men portraying everyone from two ladies of the French court to a plumber to a grown up Annie Warbucks.
Original Off-Broadway When Pigs Fly cast member David Pevsner will portray some of the roles in the revue. Further casting has not yet been announced.
Tickets are available by calling the Coronet Theatre Box Office at (310) 657-7377. The Coronet Theatre is located at 366 N. La Cienega Boulevard in West Hollywood.
