First Date Tickets

When tightly wound Aaron is set up with cool girl Casey, a quick drink turns into a hilarious dinner served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, a slew of bad boy and uptown girl exes, and some seriously saucy chemistry. Can this mismatched pair turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives, or end up at another table for one?

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.


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"...There's a certain crackle to the performances by Levi and Rodriguez, a kinetic in-the-momentness, that elevates the material. "

Entertainment Weekly

Thom Geier

"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."


Marilyn Stasio

"Familiar material is delivered with comic verve and charm in this winning, small-scale tuner."

The Hollywood Reporter

Frank Scheck

"That's the entertaining idea behind the sassy new musical comedy, 'First Date.' The overall tone is satiric, but there's a sneakily persistent undercurrent of optimism in the fun, fast-paced production..."
