I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Speak in Mandarin Chinese

After wishing for years that I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change would close already, we’re now actually glad that it hasn’t. Why? Because an all-Mandarin version has arrived direct from Shanghai to run in rep with its lesser American counterpart (May 9–June 3). Evidently, men wearing leopard-print underwear over their sweatpants and women who seduce with pink feather boas are universal symbols, people! Don’t ask who the audience is: It’s you. Western musical-theater clichés look newly strange and oddly compelling. Just whatever you do, don’t read the supertitles. —Drew Pisarra
