I Love you, Your Perfect, Now Change by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts is the second longest running ‘off Broadway’ musical of all time and it is easy to see why. The show takes a hilarious look at the triumphs and pitfalls of love and relationships through a series of connected vignettes. Leeds G&S is proud to be reviving this show post its 2012 sell out run at The Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds – but this time taking it on tour across the Leeds area. The play’s tagline, “Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit,” makes it clear that this is a show for anyone who has ever been in or fallen out of a relationship.
Please be aware that there are some adult themes and language in this production.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
