The curtain goes up Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the final three performances of the hit musical I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change at the community playhouse.

"The celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind the contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship,’” director Scott Carlson said. “This amazing show is the longest running off-Broadway musical in history and you don't want to miss it.”

Show time is 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday's matinee begins at 2 p.m. The musical is at the Neville Center, downtown at Fifth and Bailey.

The show consists of nearly 20 skits and vignettes on such topics as the phone call, first date, sex and marriage, traveling as a family, and romance at funerals.

Act I explores the journey from “dating and waiting” to “love and marriage.”

Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set, Carlson said.

In the “sex and marriage” vignette, the couple indulges in some joyous anticipation, having tucked in the boys and picked up the toys, and deals with the consistent “one more thing to do.” The scenes are true to life, and show that music, humor and love are best when they are intertwined.

Lori Swanson is the musical director.

Carlson said this comedy pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask, "Say, what are you doing Saturday night?"

Tickets are available at the door.

“We promise many laughs,” Carlson said. “Come join us!”

A stellar cast of actors plays different characters throughout the show.

They are: Andrew Lee, Bonnie Nelson, Desiree Russell, Michael Lecher, Scott Carlson, Seth Vapenik, Tanner Hand, Teagan Lovelace and Tia San Miguel.
