Director/Music Director: Jeanette Airen

Choreographer: TBA


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?


All roles can be played by actors ages 18+.

Aaron (Male Lead - Tenor) Late 20s-30s. New Yorker. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard.

Casey (Female Lead - Mezzo-Soprano) Late 20s-30s.  Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism.

Man #1 (Male Supporting - Baritone) Gabe, Edgy British Guy; 20s - 30s; any ethnicity. GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron's best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY a bad boy from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, he is overcompensating. 

Man #2 (Male Supporting - Tenor) Reggie, Edgy Rocker Guy, Aaron's Future Son; Late 20s - 30s, REGGIE is Casey's fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. Aaron and Casey’s FUTURE SON: A premonition of the future; confused whether to follow Judaism or Catholicism, Rapper.

Man #3 (Male Supporting - Baritone) Waiter, Therapist, Casey's Father; 35 - 45, A career WAITER, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY'S FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.

Woman #1 (Female Supporting - Mezzo-Soprano) Grandma Ida, Lauren, Aaron's Mother; 25 - 40, belt/mix. Casey's sister, LAUREN is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can't break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA is Aaron's dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her grandson should marry a Jewish woman. AARON’S MOTHER: An absentee mother, regretfully sings duet with Aaron- "The Things I Never Said."

Woman #2 (Female Supporting - Mezzo-Soprano) Allison; 25 - 35, ALLISON: Aaron’s ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Must have great belt and some soprano.

(Some of the supporting roles may be split into multiple roles for a larger cast.)
