The second longest-running off-Broadway musical ever, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is headed for community theater in Katy courtesy of the Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center and Encore Players.
Sam Houston State senior Erin Eder, 21, is the co-director of this production which was selected, she told Art Attack, because of its humor.
Eder had open auditions posted on line and through word of mouth. Although the Katy center is a children's theater, "every now and then we add in an encore for adults," Eder said. She said the theater, now in its 15th year, has modeled itself in part on the successful Country Playhouse theater in City Centre.
Eder, who plans to graduate in December, says she spent her summer working at the theater and was offered the job of director by KVPAC director Gregory Magyar based on the work she'd already done there.
The show itself is a series of stand-alone vignettes starting with dating and proceeding through all sorts of relationships.
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change runs September 23, 24 and 30 at 8 p.m.; September 25 at 8 p.m.; October 1 at 8 p.m. and October 2 at 2 p.m. at the Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center, 2501 S. Mason Road, Suite 290, Katy. For ticket information go to www.kvpac.org or call 281-829-2787
