I Love You Because (musical theatre)

Eastbourne College have chosen a very contemporary musical for their December production which will be performed at the Birley Centre. I Love You Because opened off Broadway in 2006 and is a modern musical twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It has beautiful music composed by Joshua Salzman with lyrics by Ryan Cunningham, and some hilarious scenes.

Set in New York City, this story revolves around how a young uptight greeting-card writer’s life is changed when he meets a flighty photographer, Marcy. Austin Bennet believes he is in a safe, predicatable relationship with Catherine and so is amazed to discover her in bed with another man! Determined to win Catherine back, Austin enlists the help of Marcy but ends falling for her instead.

Birley Centre, 3rd Dec 17:45, 4th - 7th Dec 19:30.
Tickets £7.50, available by calling 01323 452255 or emailing boxoffice@eastbourne-college.co.uk
