Photo Exclusive: Alan Menken Reunites with Zachary Levi at FIRST DATE!
Just last night, composer Alan Menken stopped by First Date on Broadway to support Zachary Levi, who worked with him on the 2010 animated film 'Tangled.' Below, check out an exclusive photo of Menken with the cast backstage!
FIRST DATE stars Zachary Levi as Aaron and Krysta Rodriguez as Casey, features Sara Chase, Kristoffer Cusick, Blake Hammond, Kate Loprest and Bryce Ryness, and the cast also includes Eric Ankrim, Kevin Kern, Vicki Noon and Sydney Shepherd. First Date began performances Tuesday, July 9, 2013, and opened Thursday, August 8, 2013, at Broadway's LongacreTheatre (220 West 48th Street).
When tightly wound Aaron (Zachary Levi) is set up with serial-dater Casey (Krysta Rodriguez) a quick 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 they are not alone on this date as Casey and Aaron's inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons and the wait staff get into the act. Dinner is served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. First Date is Broadway's new hysterical and hopeful new musical about the chances we take to find love.
Tickets for First Date range from $35 to $137, and can be purchased at the Longacre Theatre box office or at www.Telecharge.com(212.239.6200). The performance schedule is as follows: Tuesday at 7pm, Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 3pm and 7pm.
