‘It’s easy to say “I love you anyway” but I don’t. I love you because.’
A modern take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this musical comedy set in familiar New York City is the joyous and quirky story of a nervy greetings card writer and a flighty photographer and how their lives are changed by their meeting; picking and criticising, ridiculing, mocking and finally realising it is one another’s awkwardness that makes them so alike.
A modern musical with the charm and wit of a quirky American sitcom and the musical brilliance of a hit contemporary stage show, I Love You Because is quickly becoming a standard of the modern musical-theatre era.
A new direction for Theatre1, following a run of successes as a leading company for producing exciting contemporary musical work in the charm of the MET studio.
From the production team behind 2015’s Songs For a New World and last year’s Dogfight.
I Love You Because runs from 11th July to 15th July, 2017.
