Playbill: Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change



Friday through Nov. 20, The Drama Center of City Arts presents the musical comedy, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” in the Stephen D. Hyers Theater in the Greensboro Cultural Center. The show, which is a series of vignettes on love and relationships, explores the toils of dating, falling in love, getting married, having children, and growing old together. The funny and thought-provoking production includes spirited songs and observations we all can identify with.

Also new this week is Theatre Alliance’s production of Sunset Boulevard, a drama about a former silent movie star whose glory has faded with the introduction of “talkies.”

This week through Sunday, Community Theatre of Greensboro continues its lively production of Sister Act: The Musical, a musical comedy that uses fun dance numbers and gospel music to tell the story of a woman hiding in a convent.

Monday through next Sunday, Nov. 14-20, Studio 1 in Burlington will perform The Miracle Worker in partnership with UNCG’s Professions in Deafness Program and members of the Deaf Community. The “shadowed production” is a beautiful art form where the interpreters are incorporated into the action on the stage, allowing everyone to enjoy the full experience.

“In a traditionally interpreted event, the deaf community must ‘ping pong’ between the interpreters and the event,” said Bobbi Croy of Studio 1. “In a shadowed production, everyone is able to immerse themselves in the experience because the action and interpretation is all happening on stage. The actors and interpreters work together to create the characters and action and to tell the story in an unforgettable way. It is a unique experience for all audience members.”

Studio 1 is now at their new location in Suite 540, Holly Hill Mall (309 Huffman Mill Road, Burlington, NC – behind La Cocina).

Still ongoing is Barn Dinner Theatre’s high-energy musical revue: Love Machine The Musical, which highlights the soulful Motown hits of the 60s and 70s. The production runs this weekend through Nov. 22.

Coming soon next week, Nov. 17-20, is Bennett College’s Little Theatre’s production of What, which examines the personal side of the Black Lives Matter movement.
