KRAVIS CENTER PRESENTS THE COMEDY
“I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE”
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship.” This comedy pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask ,”Say what are you doing Saturday night?
The play is presented in the form of a series of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships. The plays tagline is everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.
With few exceptions, the scenes stand independent of the others, but progress in a fashion designed to suggest an overall arc to relationships throughout the course of one’s life. A first date, for example, comes before scenes dealing with marriage, and scenes dealing with marriage come before those dealing with child bearing.
Despite the large number of characters, the show is typically done with a comparatively small cast: the original Off-Broadway production uses a cast of four. The first production was in 1996 and closed after 11 years, giving a fantastically successful 5003 hits.
I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change is a musical with book and lyrics by Joe Di Pietro and music by Jimmy Roberts. It is the second -longest running Off Broadway musical and is now on stage at the Marshall Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center through August 12, 2018 ,evenings at 7:30 p.m.. Sunday matinees at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $55 at the theatre’s box office, located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. For more information call 561-832-7469.
“YOU’RE A GOOD MAN CHARLEY BROWN”
ON STAGE AT SOL CHILDREN’S THEATRE BOCA RATON
Happiness is singing together when day is through, in the morning and evening, daytime and nighttime too, for happiness is anyone and everything at all that is loved by you. Charles Schultz’s beloved comic strip will come to life when Sol Children’s Theatre presents You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
The musical which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, will run from August 3-19, 2018. The whole gang will be there : bossy Lucy, hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, harassing blanket-toting Linus; Snoopy, in or on his doghouse, and of course ‘Blockhead’ himself, Charlie Brown.
Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. But through it all, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang stays true.
The musical is written to be performed by adults, but it is even more charming to have children portray these iconic characters. They deliver the lines with such honesty, and don’t even have to think about “the funny,” it just comes out naturally.
Charlie Brown and the gang deal with such relatable topics to young people (and adults) such as: fitting in, bullying, struggling in school, breaking bad habits, and valuing your friends. Also discussed is the fact that sometimes people are hard on you, sometimes you’re hard on yourself, but it’s important to find happiness in the little things and to remember your friends and family.
Charlie Brown will run from August 3 to 19-2018 Tickets are $20 adults, $15 for children less than 11 years of age. now on sale and can be purchased online at www.solchildren.org or by calling 561-447-8829. Sol Theatre is located at 3333 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton.
