SYNOPSIS: WHAT'S THE STORY?
  • THE STORY

    Ever been on a date and wondered what the other person was thinking? This new musical comedy lets you peer inside the nervous and busy minds of two would-be lovebirds on their first date. How can they know if they're right for each other when old boyfriends, ex-fiancees, assorted friends, relatives, and even the waiter keep offering unsolicited advice? This relationship may just have a chance - if only they can get their inner voices to shut up!

    When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron's inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant 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. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
