13 in 30: Video Highlights from 2013- FIRST DATE

2014 is upon us, which means that it's time to look back on all of the highs and lows that this past theatre season has brought. BroadwayWorld is wrapping up the year by tributing our favorite moments of 2013, and in this series, we're highlighting 13 of our favorite musical moments on stage in just 30 seconds.

Below, check out a 30 second clip from one of our favorite musicals of the year- First Date.

First Date, which opened on August 8, 2013 at Broadway's Longacre Theatre (220 W. 48th Street), will play its final performance on Sunday, January 5, 2014, at 3pm, having played 34 previews and 174 regular performances. FIRST DATE stars Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez, features Sara Chase,Kristoffer Cusick, Blake Hammond, Kate Loprest and Bryce Ryness, in a cast that includes Eric Ankrim, Kevin Kern, Vicki Noon and Sydney Shepherd. When tightly wound Aaron (Zachary Levi) is set up with serial-dater Casey (Krysta Rodriguez) 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.FIRST DATE is Broadway's new hysterical and hopeful new musical about the chances we take to find love.
