ArtisTree's Music Theatre Festival Presents, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
All NEW 2018 Version!
Book & Lyrics by Joe DiPietro
Music by Jimmy Roberts
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship.” Act I explores the journey from dating-and-waiting to love-and-marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs that accompany 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…and to ALL of those who have dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”
Directed by: Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill
Choreographed by: Susan Lamontagne

About the ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival:
The ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival offers a season of live, professional musical theatre productions that run from August to October each year. Our Festival is modeled after the “summer stock” tradition of staging shows: we use a resident company of actors and artists to create a series of musicals, with an all-new production presented every few weeks across our three-month season.
The actors, designers, technicians, and musicians of the ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival come from all over the United States. They hold degrees in theatre, and while some of our guest stars are veterans of the Broadway stage, many others are just beginning their professional careers. The Festival offers them a variety of diverse, legitimate credits for their resumes; most of our actors and directors are transplants to New York City, where the theatre action is.
Our creative team is led by festival artistic director, Josh D. Smith. Last year, he and his staff sorted through nearly 800 applications, headshots, and résumés; conducted interviews; and held auditions both locally and in New York City to assemble the finest amalgam of artists we could provide for our premier season.
For our 2017 inaugural repertoire, we presented the very popular Always…Patsy Cline, Godspell, and The Marvelous Wonderettes. Feedback from the community about the quality of the productions -- and what was seen as an exemplary use of the historic Grange Theatre -- has enabled us to return with a very exciting second season.
We also are very pleased to announce a 2018 partnership with Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States. While we worked with AEA last season under a specific Guest Artist contract, our ongoing association with them enables the festival to be recognized as a Small Professional Theatre (SPT). This allows us to employ more seasoned professionals alongside up-and-coming young artists. Starting next season, we also will be able to provide Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) points, helping to further the professional theatre careers of aspiring newcomers.
