I Love You You re Perfect Now Change (musical revue) "Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives, and in-laws, but were afraid to admit." Now the second longest running play on Broadway, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is a musical revue which takes a funny and witty look at relationships from the first date through marriage and death. From cold feet to 30 years of marriage I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is presented in the form of a series of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships. The lighter first act focuses on the ups and downs of dating, culminating in a wedding; the second act covers marriage from laughs to tears, from newlyweds to senior citizens. The trials and tribulations of being single, dating, marriage, loss, and heartbreak are cleverly explored in this reprisal of one of Lakewood's most popular productions. You will leave the show thinking Were they talking about me?

Movies: "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

Movies:  "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

Sit ye down, lads and lassies, and let me tell you about some real pirate movies.  They were made when Hollywood knew how to buckle a swash -- and they had stars like Douglas Fairbanks (“The Black Pirate,” 1926), Errol Flynn (“Captain Blood,” 1935) and Burt Lancaster (“The Crimson Pirate,” 1952).   So what if they didn’t have 3-D, surround sound and computer animation?  They had lusty men of iron aboard staunch ships of wood -- even if those ship were usually anchored on Hollywood sound stages.  

All of which brings me to this summer’s big pirate picture, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” starring the elfin Johnny Depp and the sultry Penelope Cruz.
