“Zachary Levi was absolutely Phenomenal”
Review of First Date - CLOSED

First Date
Attraction details
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I'm not the biggest fan of musicals but this was definitely one of the best I've been to...and to be honest, it is all thanks to Zachary Levi's incredible acting. I've been a fan of his since "Chuck" and didn't even know he sang. But he was absolutely natural on stage and I enjoyed more than anything seeing him up close and in person singing and acting fluidly. Although the other actors were also very good, they did not have the unique talent that Zachary Levi had. I definitely recommend the musical!

It is very entertaining and extremely well cast. The leads and supporting actors are all very talented and charismatic. You have not seen the last of any of them.
The story line is easy to connect with and is very funny.
Money and time well spent.

This play is for anyone who has ever had a "first date or "blind date". The cast is outrageous. It's for adults, no kids please. Very entertaining and funny, will keep your attention and keep you laughing. High energy cast with great appeal. The theater is small and intimate, so there's no bad seats. No intermission and the show is around 2 hours.

We were looking for a show to see while we were in NYC and I saw that Zachary Levi was in this production. I loved the TV show "Chuck" and thought this might be a fun show... it was!!! My wife never watched "Chuck" so the connection meant nothing to her so her reaction of "I would pay to see that again" should let you know that there was a whole lot of funny going on! The entire cast did a wonderful job from beginning to end. There are only seven actors on stage but they each play multiple roles pulling off costume changes on-stage while the audience attention is focused elsewhere. If you are looking for a megabuck production with special effects and fancy sets go see Phantom or Spider-Man, but if you are in the mood for musical comedy with an irreverent flair performed by some extremely creative actors then this is the show you want!!!

We went to the show on the 23rd of December and it was enjoyable. Some of the humour was perhaps not for all audiences (it gets pretty crude at some points), but overall it was very good. After seeing Zachary Levi on his NBC show, "Chuck", I was surprised/impressed to see/hear how well he could sing!

It wasn't a huge production, but they did a good job with what resources they had available to them. Overall it was a fun and enjoyable production!

At the end of the show, the actors came out and signed autographs and mingled with those who stuck around to see them. Kudos to Zachary Levi who stayed until every last person (99% women ;) ) in line had a photo with him - Nice guy! (he must have been frozen!)
