Article Pixel

As Broadway remains dark, BroadwayWorld wants to make sure that you still get your theatre fix each and every day until it's back. In our daily series Broadway Rewind, we're uncovering footage from the depths of our archives so that you can relive magical moments of Broadway past!

Today we rewind to 2013, when First Date arrived on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre, where it played for 174 performances. Led by Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez, the musical featured a book by Austin Winsberg and music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner.

When tightly wound Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, 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.
