“First Date” is much more about the rituals and rigors of dating than it is about these particular two characters....while we do discover some specifics about their backgrounds and their motivations, the characters serve largely as generic vehicles; we learn far less about them as people than we do about the “Friend Zone” (when a date says she wants to be your “friend”) and “The Awkward Pause” and the dilemma of who picks up “The Check” — all lively songs.First Date Review: ‘Chuck’ Nerd Woos ‘Smash’ Sizzler on Broadway
