The musical, according to press notes, "follows six Manhattan singles in their search for the perfect mate — or at least the perfect person to spend the night with. Dragging his feet en route to discuss living together with a longtime girlfriend, Barry (Chris Hoch) pauses in front of a Broadway theatre to eye an attractive woman (Erica Rowlett Aubrey) who's clearly meeting someone. When she approaches and says 'Sheldon?,' he hesitates for just a beat before answering…yes. And from there, the complications in this modern-day Midsummer Night's Dream just keep multiplying."
Theatre for the New City is located at 155 First Avenue. Reservations are required in advance by e-mailing TellMeNow2011@gmail.com. For more information visit www.theressomethingineedtotellyou.com.
