THE STORY:

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual 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 that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives? (www.rnh.com).

 

CHARACTERS:

Aaron—Male. Tenor. New Yorker. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard.

Casey—Female. Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism.

Man#1 (Gabe / YouTube / Stoner Guy)—Male, any ethnicity. Bari-tenor range.

Woman #1 (Grandma Ida / Lauren/ Female with Megaphone #2 / Aaron’s Mother)—Female, belt/mix with soprano.

Man #2 (Reggie / Aaron’s Future Son / Instagram / Edgy Rocker Guy)—Male, tenor.

Woman #2 (Allison / Google Girl / Female with Megaphone #1)—Female. Belt and some soprano.

Man #3 (Waiter / Casey’s Christian Father / Blaze / Twitter / Friendly Therapist)—Male, bari-tenor.
