We LOVE Theatre, We LOVE Vancouver and We LOVE to Laugh, so We LOVE that we have tickets to giveaway to the Western Canada Premiere of I Love You Because … in Vancouver from February 8th – 25th, 2012.
I Love You Because … is a modern day musical love story that will have you laughing. Set in New York, it follows four young New Yorkers as they do their best to beat the game of love. Praised by the New York Times as “terrific, refreshing fun – filled with wit and zest.” Vancouver is in for a treat from this hilarious hit musical, described by the Wall Street Journal as “everything an Off-Broadway musical should be … a charming piece of work that will send you home smiling.”
As those of you that read Being Emme are aware, we also LOVE championing the indie theatre scene, and that this is. Written by the new writing team of Ryan Cunningham & Joshuah Salzman for New York’s Off-Broadway, this is the first production of Vancouver’s newest theatre company, Intimate Theatre Productions. The Musical will feature a strong, young, up-and-coming cast (starring Victor Hunter, Aaron Lau, Erin Palm, Sayer Roberts, Harper Smith and Sheryl Anne McMillan) with some of Vancouver’s brightest new musical theatre artists, including the critically-acclaimed directing team of Shel Piercy, choreographers Shelley Stewart Hunt and Julie Tomaino, music director Kerry O’Donovan, set designer Francesca Albertazzi and costumes by Christina Sinosich.
This pair of tickets really rates up there in my Van Sexy Date Picks. Speaking of which if I manage to make it back in town in time for this, I will be needing a date of my own to take. So single gents that are kind hearted and hard working with a sense of humour can line up here. In the meantime back to the contest …
To enter to win this pair of tickets, you simply need to complete the sentence “I love you, because …” in the comments below. You can be talking about your significant other, your family, your best bud, your best bud’s sister, your cat … I don’t care who, as long as you complete the sentence, by Saturday February 4th at midnight PST.

I love you because…you don’t sigh too much when I switch the TV to ‘House Hunters.’ “
Can’t make it to Vancouver, but good luck!

“I love you because…… someone has to.”
I love you because… You have contests for awesome free swag! And I always go for the most contextually-appropriate answer…
I love you because you are the best!
I love you because…you’ve never let distance, time, or circumstance hinder you from always being there for me.

Sigh… were I only in Vancouver! Sounds like such a fun play.
I love you (New York) because you are such a magnificent city with so many wonderful things to see and do. Hope to get back there again soon.
I love you, because everything is better when you’re around
I’m not a regular at theatrical events, but this production will probably change that routine. Although every performer was awesome, I was particularly amused my Aaron’s Chinese landlord role (hillarious), Erin’s amazing talent (adorable) and Sayer’s vocal control (wow). Good work dudes and dudettes. http://www.experiencingvancouver.ca/2012/02/i-love-you-because.html
