SUU’S DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE ARTS AND DANCE
Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: A crazy, musical comedy joyride through the dizzying spectrum of modern male-female relationships, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change has delighted audiences across the country. It is the second longest running Off-Broadway musical featuring book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts. Southern Utah University’s College of Performing and Visual Arts presents the witty revue October 27-29 and November 3-5, at the Auditorium Theatre in Cedar City. There is limited seating only for all performances which begin at 7:30pm. T. Anthony Marotta directs this production.
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change presents a series of vignettes on the ever-elusive subjects of love and relationships. The play's tagline is "Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit,” says it all. This musical comedy revue includes "Always a Bridesmaid", "Men Who Talk and the Women Who Pretend They're Listening" and "On the Highway of Love", to name a few. "I loved it, it's perfect, now see it!" said The Observer. Featuring adult themes and situations, the musical is recommended for mature audiences.
T. Anthony Marotta, who directed SUU’s last season hit musical Godspell, says “Love, Perfect, Change is a hilarious reflection of the joy and madness of men and women trying to connect in our modern world. Six of SUU’s finest performers play over 60 different roles that sing, dance, laugh, and cry their way through finding partners, dating, marriage, having children, and growing old together. This musical comedy is both fun and touching, full of truth and full of laughs. This show is entirely designed and performed by our students and they really shine. You can tell how much fun they are having with the contemporary material.”
The ensemble cast features Elisa Black, Tatem Credille, Josh Durfey, Jayson LeBaron, Redge Palmer, and MacKenzie Pedersen playing over 40 roles characters in a variety of male/female relationships.
The all student creative team includes scenic designer Ruby Graves, costume designer Molly Niederhauser, lighting designer Ryan Orcutt, sounder engineer/designer Kami Christiansen and make-up and hair designer Emilie Anderson. Kaitlyn Woolley is assistant director and Miriam Gonzalez serves as stage manager.
