Review for I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change:

UTC Theatre Company allows you to experience the exhilaration and anxiety of relationships in the crowd-pleasing musical I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts. This off-Broadway hit rides the rollercoaster of romance with such familiar types as the sloppy single guy, the career-driven single woman, the new parents who have forgotten how to speak to adults, the sex-deprived married couple and the rambunctious senior couple. 

“Sure the show has some deep and poignant things to say about relationships, but it is really just a lot of fun," says Steve Ray, director.  "Music, dance, and jokes are blended with tender scenes, but the show never drags. It just zips through the stages of romance from the first date to the golden years.  This cast is going to shine. They are each very talented, but they are also funny. Tim Hinck is doing an amazing job as music director and Lindsay Fussell’s choreography makes this musical sparkle.” 

UTC Theatre Company’s I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change production features: Cast: Trevor Denney, Cricket Glenn, Garrett Henson, Gregory Jackson, Katelin Klepper, Trevor Miles, Erin Skelley and Courtney Tucker. S

Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Center box office by phone at 425-4269 or in person. Tickets are also available to purchase at tickettracks.com. Tickets are $15 general admission and $12 for students and seniors.

Lawlessness At Heritage Park

As a frequent visitor at Heritage Park in East Brainerd, I must say that the situation is becoming slightly out of control.  To start, parking is atrocious.  The unpaved lot contains nothing but loose gravel which has naturally given way to divots in the ground assuring you a few bumps.  Why isn't this area smoothed out?  It's not worth parking there anyways ...

Roy Exum: A Grand Thanksgiving Feast

I’m not really sure how it all came about but a few days before Thanksgiving last year, what was usually a crowded table had dwindled down to just Mother, Aunt Martha and me. Just the idea of getting dressed up made both of them tired, which happens when you are 89 and 87, respectively, and the thought of preparing the traditional feast brought only further groans so I announced ...
