This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as "the relationship."

Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, "Say, what are you doing Saturday night?"

REVIEWS:

"So smartly conceived...catchy tunes and witty lyrics."

Variety

"Hilarious! The most entertaining show on or off Broadway!"

Gannett Newspapers

"If this show were a blind date, you'd feel relieved, grateful and pleasantly surprised."
