I Love You Because

By Ryan Cunningham and Joshua Salzman
Produced by Jonesing for Theatre with Dive in Productions

I Love You Because is a modern musical twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, set in New York City. I Love You Because follows Austin Bennet, a young greeting card writer whose life is turned upside down when he finds his girlfriend in bed with another man. Forced back out into the treacherous New York dating scene, Austin meets Marcy, whose spontaneity is matched only by her ability to drive him insane. A comedy that explores the rules and nuances of dating because sometimes love is learning how to love someone, not in spite of their differences, but because of them.

Jonesing for Theatre is offering a on-demand option as well.
