First Date

Kim Elizabeth: First Date The Musical! I went in with no expectations and Zachary Levi completely blew me away. Flawless voice, excellent comedic timing, and wonderful chemistry with Krysta Rodriguez. And he takes time to talk to every person that waits for him at the stagedoor. I've seen productions that have brought in Hollywood stars to boost ticket sales, but have never seen one with the talent and heart that Zachary Levi brought to Broadway this season. He is a true star!

Tara Leighton:  I can't decide between Newsies, Kinky Boots and First Date.  All three were fantastic!!!!!!!!

Gabby Glanville:  Spider Man Turn Off the Dark and First Date.  Getting to the casts and seeing their phenomenal shows was easily the highlight of my year!!

Alanna Perkovich-Smith:   First Date!!!! The show made me laugh out loud on numerous occasions, the cast had amazing chemistry and every cast member took time to appreciate the fans at the stage door. A Broadway experience I will never forget!

An original musical about dating in the big city, First Date opened at Broadway's Longacre Theatre in August.  The musical stars Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez.
