Samantha Barks, Simon Lipkin, Oscar Conlon-Morrey and Rufus Kampa are some of the cast of Broadway musical First Date which is to be presented online in October.
Lambert Jackson Productions and Crazy Coqs have announced that a virtual production of Broadway musical First Date is to be filmed at Crazy Coqs then made available for streaming from 22- 24 October at 7.30 pm.
Do opposites really attract? Cool chick Casey and tightly wound Aaron 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.
Dean Johnson directs Samantha Barks (Casey), Oscar Conlon-Morrey (Man #2), Rufus Kampa (Young Aaron), Simon Lipkin (Aaron), Nicholas McLean (Man #1), and Danielle Steers (Woman #1).
First Date has a book by Austin Winsberg, music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, videography by Dean Johnson, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins and musical direction by Josh Winstone.
