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.

Far be it for me to suggest the Hamilton County Commission and the School Board need to spend more time at recess but it was obvious this week the two groups need to work at being better friends. We have nine county commissioners and just as many corresponding school board members to work together for the betterment of one entity – Hamilton County. Everybody who thinks that is happening ...
