Theatre Too presents its last-ever production of ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect’ (no, seriously!)
London had The Mousetrap. Off-Broadway had The Fantasticks. And Dallas has I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. Actually, make that one also a “had.” Like those other cities with shows that seemed to run forever, the romantic musical revue from out librettist Joe DiPietro and composer Jimmy Roberts has been a staple on the North Texas theater scene for nearly two decades — Theatre Too (the smaller space at Theatre 3) has presented the show on 17 prior occasions. But this 18th will be, we are assured, the last … and they are going out in style. B.J Cleveland returns as director with a cast including Janelle Lutz, Aaron Green, Greg Hullett and Liz J. Millea. And on Valentine’s Day, the production moves upstairs to the mainstage for a one-night-only special edition featuring a slew of returning cast members from all 18 years of the show.

Second Thought launches season with ‘Hillary and Clinton’
A woman named Hillary is running for president, but her campaign seems stalled. She has a husband named Bill.
The play is called Hillary and Clinton. Sound familiar? Well it is… and it isn’t. Playwright Lucas Hnath (a recent Tony nominee for A Doll’s House Part 2) created this fictional 2016 play about an alternative universe of political intrigue… but it has never seemed more relevant. Stormi Demerson and Barry Nash star in this first show of Second Thought Theatre’s 2018 season.
