You haven’t changed a bit and other Lies-Musical show at the Santa Monica Playhouse- Preview, Tickets

“You haven’t changed a bit And other lies” Musical show at the Santa Monica Playhouse going on now through April 10th has been receiving great reviews and press

“Heartfelt look at three married couples in their 60s and their personal and senior-moment induced tribulations.”
LA Times

Renowned playwright Jerry Mayer turned 90 on September 5, 2021, his pen and wit sharp as ever. Currently developing his 11th play, he also took time out to revisit the acclaimed musical he wrote with son Steve. Now, Santa Monica Playhouse presents a limited run of this brand-new incarnation of the riotous and poignant musical, “You Haven’t Changed A Bit, and Other Lies,” February 26 – April 10, 2022.

“…that rare jewel in the theater, a musical comedy that deals in a witty and very entertaining way with love and marriage in middle age.”
Gardena Valley News

From the hilarious “The Role Reversal Tango,” to the tongue-firmly-in-cheek tribute to the not-so-firm “Upper Arms” of the over 60s set, to the heart-wrenching “Whatever Happened to Our Love Song,” the Mayer team’s brilliance shines through as audiences follow the adventures of aging – lovingly dissected, shredded, massaged and put back together again – through the eyes of three married couples – Jewish, Italian, Irish – who have known each other for over 35 years. It’s time for a renewal of vows. But much has changed…perhaps too much? Will all three couples make it to the altar again? Only time, and the Mayer team, will tell.

“This musical about three sixty something couples had this night’s audience roaring.”

Young and old alike will love this play. All ages will marvel at the clever subtleties in the witty lyrics of original songs… It’s hard to remember an evening when I left the theatre with so much gaiety and wonderment.”
