Boston finds legit match

Partnership brings new prod'n, name to theater district

SOUTHBURY, Conn. — The New York-based production company ZPI (Nick Paleologos and Fred Zollo) and Boston’s downtown 57 Theater have formed a strategic partnership, the result of which is a new production and a new name for the 450-seater in the theater district’s Radisson Hotel Boston.

The long-running Off Broadway New York musical review “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” will launch the partnership with a “limited” run at the newly named Stuart Street Theater starting Sept. 15.

It will be co-produced with the show’s original New York producers, Jonathan Pollard, Dena Hammerstein and Bernie Kukoff, and will be directed by its original New York director, Joel Bishoff.

David Colfer, managing director of the Stuart Street Theater, points out that Sollo and Paleologos are Boston natives with “a long and significant track record of commercial theater producing both on and Off Broadway, in London’s West End and on the road.”

Growing possibilities

He also points out that the new partnership “will expand the growing theater possibilities in Boston” as the Stuart continues its policy of producing Off Broadway plays and musicals in Boston, now with the help of ZPI.

The cast of the Boston “I Love You” will be Chip Phillips, Kathy St. George, Amy White and Adam Hunter. Tickets will be $25 for Tuesday and Wednesday performances, $45 for all other performances Thursday through Sunday.

Preparatory to the opening of the show, which is in its fifth year in New York, the Stuart’s exterior is being redesigned to feature new signage and a more theatrical and inviting entrance to the theater.

Its interior was renovated last summer. The theater continues to be owned by the Boston-based, family-owned company JPA Management, which continues to be involved in the day-to-day operations of all aspects of its businesses including the Radisson, the Stuart and the 57 Steakhouse.
