The Man (Mathias Becker) and Woman (Mollie Fischer) desperately need the legal services of the
Attorney (Christina Dyrland Smith) as articulated by the Spokesman (Jared Oxborough).
The Woman (Mollie Fischer) is delighted to win a settlement check,
presented by the Spokesman (Jared Oxborough), against the Man
(Mathias Becker) for his lack of ability to please her in bed, as
negotiated by her Attorney (Christina Dyrland Smith).
With a tagline styled after the title of a late ’60s book about s-e-x, cabaret-style musical
I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change presents a fast-paced string of scenes focused on the
trials of heterosexual coupling from a mostly humorous perspective. Wikipedia claims “of
the shows currently open off-Broadway in 2008, it is the longest-running.” It premiered
in 1996 at New York City’s Westside Theatre and has never closed. It’s garnered over
$60 million worldwide in ticket sales and survived translation into thirteen languages,
including Hebrew, Spanish, Dutch, Hungarian, Czech, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese,
German, Catalan, Finnish, and Mandarin.
