Why See First Date?

Ever been on a date and wondered what the other person was thinking?

This new musical comedy lets you peer inside the nervous and busy minds of two would-be lovebirds, Soho artist Casey and Wall Street trader Aaron, on their first date.

How can they know if they're right for each other when old boyfriends, ex-fiances, assorted friends, relatives, and even the waiter keep offering unsolicited advice?

This relationship may just have a chance - if only they can get their inner voices to shut up!
