Two shows premiere on July 9. First Date, the musical about a couple that’s on a first date that may be doomed, but then again, maybe it’s not. These two bring a lot to the dating table, making for a hilarious night that has its up and downs, surprises and upbeat ending.
Aaron, an uptight guy, gets set up to be with the ultimate cool girl, Casey. It’s supposed to be a quick drink, but that one drink turns into an evening that takes a hilarious look at the dating scene. It’s about neurosis, impulse, fear, passion and much more. Of course the complexities of life, including Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, many bad boy and uptown girl exes, and some sexy chemistry, are all a part of the picture. Is this a mismatch made in heaven or a dating disaster?
