Lambert Jackson Productions and Crazy Coqs have confirmed details of a virtual production of Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner‘s musical.
Streaming between the 22nd to the 24th October, First Date will be filmed at Crazy Coqs, directed by Dean Johnson.
This production of the Broadway musical is set to star Samantha Barks (Casey), Oscar Conlon-Morrey (Man #2), Rufus Kampa (Young Aaron), Simon Lipkin (Aaron), Nicholas McLean (Man #1), and Danielle Steers (Woman #1).
Do opposites really attract? Cool chick Casey (Samantha Barks) and tightly wound Aaron (Simon Lipkin) are hoping so. These two New York City singles have been set up by friends and family, but from the outset this First Date seems to be doomed. The two have nothing in common… But with the help of a meddling but well-meaning waiter, and a host of other characters along the way, can this mismatched pair turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
With a contemporary rock score, First Date gleefully pokes fun at the all too familiar dating mishaps we’ve all experienced and gives hope that there could be that one special person out there for all of us.
The musical features music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, a book by Austin Winsberg, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins and musical direction by Josh Winstone.
First Date will be available to watch from the 22nd to the 24th October. Tickets are available here.
