Musical Comedy

This hilarious, American musical comedy by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts looks at love and relationships from dating to marriage, to becoming parents, and finally to old age. It is the second-longest running Off-Broadway musical in the history of Broadway. It is also everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit!

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is presented in the form of a series of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships.  In a brand new production by Durban’s premier theatre producers, KicksArt, it stars Lisa Bobbert, Steven Stead, Roland Perold and Jessica Sole. It is directed by Greg King supported by Janna Ramos-Violante, who also choreographs. Musical direction is by Justin Southey; set design is by Greg King and costume design by Clint Singh and Marklyn Govender. Live on stage music will be provided by Justin Southey on piano and Jane Baillie on violin.

The musical premiered in New York City, on August 1, 1996 and closed on July 27, 2008, after 5,003 performances. So universal is its appeal that since then it has been translated into 13 languages including Hebrew, Spanish, Dutch, Hungarian, Czech, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, German, Catalan, Finnish and Mandarin! It has also been seen by audiences in Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston, Chicago, London, Tel Aviv, Mexico City, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Budapest, Sydney, Prague, Seoul, Milan, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg, Dublin, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Tokyo, Manila, Wiesbaden, Heidelberg and Christchurch!
