I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 11 2013

Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts's relationship musical, presented in a series of vignettes, has endured for nearly two decades, though the truths it offers (waiting for him to call, etc) can feel hokey and sanitized in today's smartphone-based hookup culture. Under director Matt Raftery, this Marriott Theatre production features easy laughs and tender bursts of human connection, initiated by a charismatic cast of four (Alex Goodrich's physical timing is top-notch). The show's most intimate moments naturally reflect on life's later stages, including Bernie Yvon and Johanna McKenzie Miller looking sweetly for a second chance at love while attending a wake. —Marissa Oberlander
