First Look: 'First Date' musical starring Zachary Levi
Okay, so we know Zachary Levi can sing Oscar-nominated tunes from hit Disney flicks, but are you ready for the Chuck star to lay it down in a brand-new Broadway musical? First Date, a new musical comedy, follows the real-time date of Aaron (Levi) and the vivacious, sarcastic beauty Casey (Smash‘s Krysta Rodriguez), but this being a comedy, we’re going to guess that it amounts to way more than awkward giggles and slight overshares. Early word on Mr. Levi’s performance is quite encouraging, so it seems that Broadway will fit as nicely as a CV bragging right as Charles “Chuck” Bartowski did with CIA mainframes.
First Date, with a score by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner and a book by Austin Winsberg, is currently in previews at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre. It’s scheduled to open officially on Aug. 8. Tickets and additional information are available on the show’s official website.
