Peoria Cabaret Theatre is proud to present the Central Illinois premiere of I Love You Because February 11-12 and 18-19, starring Jarod Hazzard, Erin Durbin, Adam Sitton, Dedra Kaiser, Kyle Motsinger, & Kates Sitton. It is directed by Ed Peck with musical direction by Tony Roberts.
This musical comedy valentine is the perfect “date show” with romance for the ladies and plenty of crude humor to keep the guys entertained as well. (C’mon guys, there is a song called “We’re Best Friends (with Benefits)”, how can you go wrong with that?) If you are a fan of “How I Met Your Mother” and “Friends” then I Love You Because is the musical for you!
THE SHOW: I Love You Because follows Austin Bennet, a young greeting card writer whose life is turned upside down when he finds his long-term girlfriend Catherine in bed with another man. Forced back out into the treacherous New York dating scene, Austin meets Marcy Fitzwilliams, a flighty photographer whose spontaneity is matched only by her ability to drive him insane. This new musical comedy explores the ‘rules’ and nuances of modern dating and learning how to love someone, not in spite of their differences, but because of them.
