Simon Lipkin & Samantha Barks to lead ‘First Date’ revival

Simon Lipkin (Nativity! The Musical) and Samantha Barks (Pretty Woman, Les Miserables) will star in a live streamed production of Broadway musical First Date this coming October.

Austin Winsberg, Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner’s musical is about two mis-matched singletons in New York, played by Barks and Lipkin, who have been set up on a date that goes from a disaster to a delightful evening.

Featuring a contemporary rock score, First Date gleefully pokes fun at the all too familiar dating mishaps and gives hope that there could be that one special person out there for all of us.

The show will also feature Oscar Conlon-Morrey (Only Fools And Horses), Nicholas McLean (Wicked), Danielle Steers (Bat Out Of Hell) and Rufus Kampa (The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole: The Musical).

The show will be live streamed from London’s Crazy Coqs venue for 3 performances from 22 to 24 October 2020. The venue will not have a live audience.

First Date has direction and videography by Dean Johnson, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins and direction by Josh Winstone.
