I do, I do

I do, I do

Musical theatre by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones.
New Swedish lyrics by Ulricha Johnson.

A musical theatre about a marriage by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones for everybody who is married, has been married, is going to get married or knows somebody who is married!

The musical takes place in a bedroom, around a double bed, during 50 years of time! In the beginning (1950) we share the young couple Agnes and Michael's expectations and nervousness before the wedding, then we follow them into the bedroom. We stay there for 50 years, until it is time for the aging couple to move to something smaller.
The songs are a string of pearls mixed with spoken scenes with witty and playful dialogue. The music is very accessible and it is likely that quite a few songs will stay on the mind of many in the audience after the performance.
