"...Whoo boy, the relationship commentary in Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts's 1996 off-Broadway musical has not aged gracefully, the references to smartphones shoehorned into this Quest Theatre Ensemble production notwithstanding."

"...The hour of real pleasure in “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!” is spread over two hours of show time, resulting in a decidedly mixed evening of theater. The 1995 work, with book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts, is a victim of its own format. Act one is a likable and laugh-producing revue about the joys and (mostly) pitfalls of dating. The themes are familiar ones—self-doubt, awkwardness, vulnerability, first-date fibs, constricting gender roles, fear of loneliness vs. the resentment at having to try one’s luck yet one more time—treated here with a light, semi-satirical touch. But in creating a full-length musical (which ran off-Broadway for a dozen years), the writers have appended a less successful post-marriage second act that, in reaching for depth and poignancy, instead goes a bit sour and heavy."

"...And its current staging of Joe DiPietro's (book/lyrics) and Jimmy Roberts' (music) lovingly funny relationship vignette production, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, is simply the best professional theatre value anywhere within 1,000 miles of its venue at Andersonville's The Blue Theatre."

"...In addition to the comedy, Dickerson brings a heartbreaking quality to some of her more serious scenes, such as "The Very First Dating Video of Rose Ritz." The storyline of this scene follows Rose who is recently divorced, and shares her fears of entering the dating scene only to get hurt again. Dickerson showcases a sense of honesty in this scene that is highly sympathetic, and creates a very real story to accompany the humorous scenarios that follow."
