I Love You Because


A modern day musical love story

With a nod toward Jane Austen’s exploration of what attracts people to one another, this musical is the story of a young, uptight greeting card writer whose life is changed when he meets a flighty photographer. Along with their eccentric friends and siblings, they learn to love each other not in spite of their faults, but because of them.
