Wolverhampton Grand to take in-house production to Edinburgh Fringe

One of the longest-running off-Broadway revues in history will be presented as a brand-new production by Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.

Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts’ I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change will be created in house at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre for eight exclusive performances between 16 – 20 July before playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 2 – 24 August.
Directed by Grand Theatre Associate Artistic Director Karl Steele, the production explores modern relationships in all their forms and will be presented in a way that audiences have never experienced a show at the Grand Theatre before.
Audiences will take their seat on the Grand Theatre stage for an intimate, immersive experience that has audiences right at the heart of the story. I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is played out against the backdrop of and using the theatre’s stunning auditorium space. Karl said:

“Audiences will recognise the hilariously relatable annoyances that all relationships have and explore all the stages of relationships from those awkward first dates to falling in love and married life with kids.

"The story is intertwined with more tender and intimate moments too that make for one hugely entertaining musical that is both hilarious yet heartfelt. With such a personal and relatable subject matter, the key to creating the perfect experience in which to present this piece is in the immersive, up close and personal staging this production will feature.

"Sat on the 130-year-old stage at the Grand Theatre, our seating capacity of 1,200 is reduced to 150, with audiences experiencing what is ordinarily an actor’s eye view with scenes unfolding around them and against the backdrop of the glorious Victorian auditorium.”
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship.” Through sketches and songs, Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set.

This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”
Casting for the production will be announced soon.
Tickets for I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change are on sale to Friends of the Grand from Monday 25 March at 10am online at grandtheatre.co.uk, with public sales opening on Thursday 28 March at 10am, online.
