Now Playing! I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!
Book & Lyrics by Joe DiPietro, Music by Jimmy Roberts
Directed by B.J. Cleveland
Musical Direction by Adam C. Wright
DALLAS, TX – Theatre Three announces the eighteenth and final production of its annual New Year’s staple I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change (ILYYPNC) from January 11 to March 4, 2018 in the downstairs Theatre Too space. As part of the final run, a special one-night-only fundraising performance featuring an all-star cast of past ILYYPNC productions will be performed on Wednesday, February 14, at 7:30 p.m. upstairs on the Norma Young Arena Stage.
With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts, this celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as “the relationship.” Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting for love and marriage while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws, newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the “seasoned citizen” set.
This year’s ILYYPNC production welcomes the return of last year’s director, B.J. Cleveland, a former cast member himself. Mr. Cleveland’s company includes returning cast member Janelle Lutz, as well as Aaron Green and the recently engaged Greg Hullett and Liz J. Millea.
In addition to the regular run of ILYYPNC downstairs in Theatre Too, the production will also grace the Norma Young Arena Stage one last time on Valentine’s Day. This special performance serves as a starry fundraiser in support of Theatre Three’s Annual Fund, as well as in honor of Theatre Three’s late Music Director and Company Manager Terry Dobson, the original director of ILYYPNC. Theatre Three hopes to use funds to buy a new piano (with a plaque for Mr. Dobson) with a portion of the funds. Additional proceeds to the Annual Fund are used to underwrite general support needs of the theatre, including all costs to the theatre such as artist salaries, administrative and operational overhead, materials and supplies.

“In an unprecedented evening, we are celebrating Valentine’s Day with an all-star performance, featuring cast members from all 18 years of the show,” says Cleveland. “Even if you’ve seen the show in the past, we are moving it to the main stage for that night only and it will be a one-time chance to see a lot of great talent in a lot of different scenes usually performed by only four people.”
