ATNO is proud to present the Off-Broadway hit Musical Comedy
I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE Book & Lyrics by JOE DiPIETRO & Music by JIMMY ROBERTS and Directed by Chelle Ambrose with Musical Direction by Gina Abromson.  The show will run November 20 - 27, 2010, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with 2 Sunday matinee on November 21 at 2:30pm.  There will be no show on Thanksgiving - Thursday, November 25, 2010. ALL Tickets are $20 for adults, students (with valid ID) and seniors (60+).  This play is recommended for 13+.

"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 rearing. Ambrose directs Gina Abromson, Andrew Antoine, Miki Byrne and Jason George.

The theatre is located at 4539 N. I-10 Service Rd., Suite 200 (2nd Floor of the WTIX-FM Bldg.) behind Target at Clearview Mall.

For reservations or more information, call (504) 456-4111 or visit our website at www.actorstheatreofneworleans.com
