Love, In Reality

Bad dates. I've been on a slew of 'em and dealt with everything from introverted-emotional types all the way to brazen sport-heads, and from five-star restaurants to Mama's cooking. I'm not awkward; dating is awkward. The cast of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change unabashedly gives voice to the silent thoughts we all secretly harbor about romance, dating, lovers, marriage, husbands and wives, and having children. If you see it while maintaining a single status, don't feel bad if you catch yourself snickering about all your married work friends who are fluent in "baby talk" and dealing with their in-laws, because seriously, people in relationships are funny! I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change isn't just for the cynical type. It's a performance that people in all stages of life can relate to. If you find yourself there with a date on Valentine's, go ahead and surprise your sweetie with a bottle of Champagne from the Valentine's Special as Theatre Too presents the performance for its umpteenth year at Theatre Three, 2800 Routh St. The show starts Friday and runs through February 28; tickets are $30 to $35, or $50 for the Valentine's Special.
