[ Chinese version in PDF: 我爱你…… ] GotoBus.com, a leading online market place for bus tickets and bus tours, is working with Love Lemmings, Co. to sell show tickets for the popular Broadway musical, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change in its first Chinese version. The Chinese/American co-production was the first foreign production of an American musical to be performed in the US. I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change will be performed entirely in Mandarin, with English subtitle projected above the stage.

“We are trying to expand our ticketing services, including concerts and shows, to provide our customers with more comprehensive recreational services on our website,” says Jimmy Chen, the President of GotoBus.com. “We are very excited to work with Love Lemmings, Co. to promote the first Chinese/American co-produced Broadway musical. The Chinese/American co-production I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change will cater to those who speak Mandarin as their first language as well as those who want to watch the show from a different cultural perspective.”

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change is co-produced by The Shanghai Dramatic Arts Center and Broadway Asia Entertainment and directed by Joel Bishoff, who helmed the original New York production as well as productions in 17 cities worldwide.
