First Date ~ Stage 212 Downtown Lasalle ~ Friday, September 20th thru Sunday, September 22nd

What does a person expect out of a blind date? The Broadway musical First Date takes the audience through the first meeting of Casey and Aaron, two 30-ish New York City singles set up by friends and family. The two have nothing in common: Aaron is a conservative banker, Jewish, and looking for a meaningful relationship, while Casey is an artist, a shiksa, and a little too funky for Wall Street.
