I LOVE YOU BECAUSE is a modern twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, set in New York City. A young, uptight greeting card writer’s 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.
The I LOVE YOU BECAUSE School Edition has been adapted from the original Off-Broadway Production. The School Edition has been carefully edited, with additional director’s notes throughout, to make the show more producible for high school groups.
