What are the chances we take to find love? Aaron, a newbie in the blind dating scene, is set up to meet with Casey, a serial dater, for a casual drink in a busy restaurant. As their blind date unfolds, the mismatched pair wonders if they their date can lead to something more or if they are headed to a dating disaster. In an unexpected and delightful twist, the other patrons in the restaurant transform into Aaron and Casey’s protective parents, manipulative exes, and supportive best friends who personify the couple’s inner critics. With book by Austin Winsberg, First Date features musical score by Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary.
