I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change debuts, exclusively, on BroadwayHD to honor the hit show’s 25th Anniversary.
August 5, 2021: BroadwayHD the premier streaming service for live theater, announced today that it will bring Lambert Jackson Productions’ virtual production of Tony award-winner Joe DiPietro (Diana The Musical, Memphis, Nice Work if You Can Get It) and Jimmy Roberts’ (The Thing About Men) musical comedy I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, filmed at the London Coliseum in late 2020 exclusively to the platform in honor of the hit show’s twenty-fifth anniversary.
Since the original off-Broadway production, the show features a brand-new song, A Picture of His…, as well as updates to current numbers that have been a part of Dipietro and Roberts’ ongoing efforts to keep the show as fresh and relevant as its debut 25 years ago. The cast features some of the top West End performers including Brenda Edwards (Carousel, Chicago, The Human Comedy), Alice Fearn (Come From Away, Wicked, Oliver!), Simon Lipkin (Ghost Stories, All in a Row, As You Like It), and Oliver Tompsett (&Juliet, Rock of Ages, Kinky Boots). The production was directed by Kirk Jameson, with musical direction by Nick Barstow and associate direction by Julie Atherton. This special celebratory production will arrive on BroadwayHD September 9th.
I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change is the second-longest running off-Broadway musical in theater history and has been translated into numerous languages including Chinese, Korean, Spanish, German, French, Catalan, Hebrew, Czech and Hungarian. The beloved show follows the highs and lows of first dates, first loves, marriages, babies, in-laws, and growing old together, paying tribute to those who have loved and lost and to those who have dared to ask someone out on a date. Over the years, DiPietro and Roberts have updated lyrics in the shows’ numbers to make the production more relevant to today’s pop culture and technology-driven environment. Same sex couples also started to make appearances across productions and one number in the London Coliseum performance features same-sex partners singing about having a baby.
Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts said, “As our show, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change celebrates its 25th anniversary, we couldn’t be more excited that this deftly filmed production featuring a brilliant cast is coming to BroadwayHD.
