"I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change"
for the 21st Century.
A brand new musical about falling in (and out of love).
This hilarious 4-person musical comedy takes a closer look at the ups and downs of dating. With a wonderfully crafted pop-like score, the production resonates with youngsters
Ever feel like you’ve been thrown into a pool of millions of potential partners, but nobody has taught you how to swim? Growing up, we learned about long division and how to recite the periodic table but adulthood comes with a whole host of challenges that we are totally unprepared for. Nobody taught us the art of adulting, like how to do our taxes, how to resolve conflict or how to date like a f*#$ing grown-up! As the title suggests, How to Date like a F*#$ing Grown-Up is a guide to the do’s and don’ts of modern dating – with a little more emphasis on the don’ts! We’re not saying we have the answer, heck, we’re not even saying you should listen to our advice, but we’ve got a few pertinent and potentially hilarious tips for finding, or keeping, that special someone!
