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.
