What Is the Story of First Date?
Aaron is a "blind date virgin," while Casey has been on more than her fair share. When the two are set up by a mutual friend, sparks fly—or do they? The night unfolds over the course of this couple’s hilarious first date, and it’s not without its share of surprises in the form of imaginary visits from Aaron’s ex-girlfriend, Casey’s uptight sister, the pair’s protective parents and even their future son! Google background checks, awkward pauses and bailouts are all there during this unforgettable first encounter between two romantics, who just might be perfect for each other. Or not.
...There's a certain crackle to the performances by Levi and Rodriguez, a kinetic in-the-momentness, that elevates the material.Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly
Like the show’s romantic sensibility, the musical idiom is Broadway-lite; but again, not too-too Broadway and not too-too lite — quite suitable, really, for this entertaining, but not overly pushy show.Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety
What Is First Date Like?
At a rapid-fire 90 minutes, First Date is a lighthearted musical comedy that chronicles a blind date between Aaron (who has never gone out with a stranger) and serial romancer Casey. As the funny and occasionally foul-mouthed show sings on, the ensemble cast comes to life as various characters from Aaron and Casey’s past—and possible future! The show is perfect for a real first date, a girls’ night out or if you’re looking for a night at the theater packed with more laughs than you can count.
Is First Date Good for Kids? No, because First Date has its fair share of naughty language and sexual innuendo. Teenagers will love it, but younger children may be better off with a babysitter while the adults enjoy this romantic comedy!
