Stage West Theatre presents First Date
When tightly-wound Aaron is set up with laid-back Casey on a blind date, a casual drink turns into an uproarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds, this mismatched pair's inner critics take on a life of their own, as other 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. The result is a gleefully awkward evening, as these two romantics try to turn a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives.
This musical, with a book by Austin Winsberg and music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, is making its regional premiere at Stage West Theatre. It is a co-production with Theatre TCU.
