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 an irresistible, 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.
Trustus Theatre is excited to partner with local restaurant Gervais & Vine for a fabulous Date Night package! On select nights, enjoy a dinner at Gervais & Vine before your performance. Your dinner includes access to the entire menu of Mediterranean-inspired small plates and tapas and a glass of wine per ticket. Simply book your tickets and dinner package online at trustus.org and arrive at the restaurant by 6:15pm for ample time to enjoy your meal ahead of your 8:00pm performance. Gervais and Vine is located at 620 Gervais Street, perfect for a short walk to Lady Street for the show. Limited spots are available, and advance reservation is required.
