“First Date” at Actors’ Playhouse

First Date at Actors' PlayhouseMarch 18 – April 22, 8pm – Actors’ Playhouse at the The Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables

First Date, a hysterical and hopeful new Broadway musical about the chances we take to find love, will open at Actors’ Playhouse. 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 finds that they are not alone. 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 their 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? “Flat-out ingenious” – Variety. Performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. No performance on Friday, March 20. Tickets range from $35 to $52. #FirstDateMIA @APMiracle
