Curtain Call Theatre celebrates Valentine’s Day with the musical

  In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Curtain Call Theatre (CCT) will present the musical comedy “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” – with book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts – on February 10, 11, 17 & 18 at 8:00 p.m. and February 12 & 19 at 2:00 p.m. “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” is about everything you’ve ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit. Directed and choreographed by David Costa (Dorchester) and music directed by Dan Moore (Roslindale), this production stars actors Bowen Huang (Chinatown), Stephanie Charlton (Malden), Jay Hutzler (Jamaica Plain) and Michael Herschberg (Needham).

  Reflecting on this show, Herschberg said, “I saw this show many years ago when I was young, dating, and single and loved it. Years later as a married dad of two kids I still love it. I’m sure 20 years from now I’ll still love it. This show has something for everyone no matter if you are single, dating, engaged, married, divorced, a parent, or a grandparent. You’ll find part of your life reflected in so many of the songs.”

  Costa, who has also directed “Every Brilliant Thing,” “Forever Plaid” and “Nunsense” for CCT, said, “When Toni Ruscio asked me to direct and choreograph, I had never seen the show before. I instantly fell in love with it. The cast and I have had a lot of fun throughout the process.”

  Charlton adds, “It’s amazing how only four people can convey so many aspects of the many stages and types of relationships, but this small and mighty group are definitely up to the challenge, and I’m honored to be part of it.”

  Said CCT Producing Artistic Director Toni Ruscio, “Curtain Call Theatre is excited to celebrate love with this production of ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!’. The show is sure to be a ton of fun and features four excellent local actors. It’s just the thing we all need to lift the winter blues.”

  Tickets cost $27 and can be purchased at www.curtaincallbraintree.org. CCT is located at 182 Commercial St. in Braintree, Mass.

  CCT was founded in 1962, when a core group of local performers from various little theatre groups united to perform “Oklahoma!” Ruscio said, “Our purpose is to provide a medium for people to develop their creative talents through experience in the field of live entertainment.”
