Zachary Levi To Make Broadway Debut In ‘First Date’

Zachary Levi will star opposite Krysta Rodriguez in First Date, a romantic musical comedy with a book by Gossip Girl’s Austin Winsberg and music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner. The Broadway show begins performances July 9 and opens August 8 at the Longacre. Levi plays Aaron, who is set up on a first date with Casey (Rodriguez). 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.
