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

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 29 2017

Whoo boy, the relationship commentary in Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts's 1996 off-Broadway musical has not aged gracefully, the references to smartphones shoehorned into this Quest Theatre Ensemble production notwithstanding. Women like to ask for directions while men don't! Women like to cry at the movies while men don't! New parents are too busy to fuck! That's to say nothing of director Laura Sturm's vocally strong four-person cast, who have less schlocky material to work with in the more bittersweet second act about the long arc of marriage. Liz Jarmer, Gavin Donnellan, Christian Aldridge, and Alys Dickerson make the most of the harmless, mostly toothless comedy. —Dan Jakes
