Montreal Premiere of the hit off-Broadway Musical by Tony Award-winning writer Joe DiPietro!

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change

The Segal Centre proudly presents the incredibly popular musical I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change with book and lyrics by Tony Award®-winning Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts. This hysterical exploration of love in all its many splendored forms is the second longest running off-Broadway show and will have its Montreal premiere at the Segal, May 8 through May 29, 2016.

Love is… A battlefield? A many splendored thing? All you need? What you want it to be?
This celebration of the mating game deftly lampoons the oh-so-many moods, stages and stumbling blocks of the contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship”. From first date jitters to nursing home affections, this laugh-out-loud revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, those who have fallen on their face in the quest for romance and those who have dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”

One of the Longest Running Shows in Off-Broadway History!
From prolific Broadway writer Joe DiPietro (All Shook Up, Memphis and Nice Work If You Can Get It), I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change opened in 1996 and ran for twelve years (5,003 performances) off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre. Since closing in 2008, the musical has had many revivals around the world. It has been translated into at least 18 languages, including French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. This will be its first time playing for Montreal audiences.

Of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Artistic & Executive Director, Lisa Rubin Says:
“This production has enjoyed such a longstanding popularity because of its universal and timeless appeal. Anyone who’s ever been frustrated by the dating game or been in love and has gone on to get married and have children will relate to the different characters on stage. I am glad Montrealers will finally be able to enjoy this show that’s touched audiences all over the world.”

Triple-Threat Cast Taking on Multiple Roles
