The Boston Amateur Premiere of this Modern Musical Love Story!
In this modern-day reworking of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, we meet four 20-somethings in search of love in the "crazy, mixed up world" of New York City. Austin Bennet, a finicky, by-the-book, greeting card writer, has just had his heart broken by his long-term girlfriend and is looking for a way to win her back. Enter Marcy Fitzwilliam: a free-spirited, spontaneous artist, who is on the rebound from her last boyfriend and in search of Mr. Wrong...to help her eventually find Mr. Right. With a little help from fate — well, fate, the internet, and the good intentions of Austin's goofy brother, Jeff, and Marcy's best friend Diana — the mismatched pair is brought together, and develop a mutual attraction...based on how wrong they are for each other. With charm, wit, and a little bit of romance, I Love You Because looks at the rules of dating, relationships, and what it means to really love someone because of who they are.
"Infectiously entertaining! Filled with wit and zest, I Love You Because is terrific, refreshing fun!" as hailed by The New York Times.
