Following a three-year run at Second City's Up Comedy Club in Chicago, Robyn Lynne Norris' musical comedy #DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment will arrive at the Westside Theatre Off-Broadway in June.
Part improv and part sketch comedy, #DateMe follows what happens next after Norris—in an attempt to better understand the dating world—creates 38 “undateable” profiles on the popular dating site OkCupid. Performances will begin June 20 with casting to be announced.
#DateMe was created by Norris, who wrote the show along with Bob Ladewig and Frank Caeti. Developed with Diane Alexander and directed by Lorin Latarro (Waitress), the show features song lyrics by Norris, Frank Caeti, Amanda Blake Davis, and Bob Ladewig, and original music by Julie Nichols and Dan Wessels.
The creative team is made up of David Arsenault (scenic design), Travis McHale (lighting design), Sam Hains (projections and interconnectivity). Casting is by Tara Rubin Casting. #DateMe is produced Off-Broadway by Elizabeth Williams and Alexander with Remmel Dickinson, Benjamin Lowy, and Adrian Salpeter.
