'I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change'

(5 December 2018)

Tone Deaf Theatre Company (TDTC) presents this musical comedy, with book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts. With an amazing cast, insightful and emotional moments and laughs in every scene, come and join TDTC between Thursday, 6 December and Saturday, 8 December at 7.30pm for an evening of hilarious, and all too real insights, into dating just before the Christmas holidays. Tickets are available here.

Have you ever been so nervous before a date you couldn’t decide what to wear? Have you ever lied about yourself on a date? Have you ever liked the other person so much but not known how to explain or express the way you felt? This unique show puts into words "everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit” and performs it to an audience, and it is great fun to watch.

This upbeat, endearing and truthful song cycle explores all forms of love and modern relationships, from the first date through marriage to family and beyond. Holding the mirror up to relationships, this witty, sincere and relatable musical has something for everyone. Its small cast portrays a full range of emotional complexities and relationships and creates a powerful experience for the audience when they are the full focus of the storyline.
