“Broadway’s Musical Comedy”
When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
First Date premiered on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre in 2013 and has since been seen in over 50 productions around the world, including: Japan, Mexico, Argentina, Greece, Italy, Israel, France, England, Australia and many more. The musical features a book by Austin Winsberg and music & lyrics by Alan Zachary & Michael Weiner.
