I love you, you’re perfect, now change

Ron Bohmer

On Monday night, the folks and I went to see an off-Broadway show called “I love you, you’re perfect, now change”. It’s described as a “comedy revue about everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit” and that about sums it up.Glenn Robbins - see any resemblance?

I thought we were in for something rather sedate when the two theatre-goers ahead of us struggled up the stairs, one with a walker and the other lugging his oxygen tank. But the show turned out to be quite humorous, entertaining and modern! Mum was all the more entertained when one of the four performers started reminding her of Glenn Robbins! I don’t know if it was his face or his mannerisms… What do you think?

Spanning all different experiences of love – dating, online dating, the single man drought, marriage, children, weddings, and finding love as a widower – there was something there for everyone. And judging by the audience reaction, the longer you’d been married, the more you could relate to the comedy. Clearly it wasn’t Gerrod’s scene but I think even he would have laughed at certain songs. For instance, who wouldn’t relate to “men who talk and women who pretend to listen” and a song about women dragging men to see chick flicks? Cynicism was even put aside for a moment with a lovely song called “shouldn’t I be less in love with you” about a fellow that’s surprised to find how much he still loves his wife 30 years on.

Though you can’t compare a four-person cast to the experience of a broadway show, it was certainly a fun night out!

    It couldn’t be the face, they look nothing alike at all!

    I saw the show when it was on in Brisbane and enjoyed it. I agree with Ant that it must have been the mannerisms that they have in common, cause looks it ain’t.
