First Date – Stellar
Click here for tickets :  $20

July 23-25 

Here’s a lightweight and charming musical starring ‘‘American Idol’’ alumni (and real-life married couple) Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo.

FIRST DATE tells the story of Aaron and Casey, two single New Yorkers on a blind date with nothing to lose, except maybe their patience and sanity. This hilariously relatable musical puts you right at the bar along with them –  and all the persistent voices in their heads. While they fight the urge to call it a no-go, they suffer through every dating faux pas in the book, from awkward silences to rambling about their exes to panicking over their past. But in the end, they can’t help but be curious about their chances at a second date…and maybe even finding love.

​With a contemporary pop Broadway score, and filled with those cringeworthy yet priceless moments that might feel all-too familiar, FIRST DATE lets us know it’s all part of the wonderful process of finding the perfect partner.
