#DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment will play its final performance at the Westside Theatre September 15. The new comedy—a result of creator Robyn Lynne Norris' real-life experiment on the popular dating site OkCupid—premiered Off-Broadway this summer following hit runs in Los Angeles and Chicago.
#DateMe began at the Westside June 20. Part improv, part immersive, part musical, and part sketch comedy, the show is inspired by Norris' creation of 38 “undateable” profiles online.
The show was developed with Diane Alexander and directed by Lorin Latarro (Waitress), and features lyrics by Norris, Frank Caeti, Amanda Blake Davis, and Bob Ladewig, with original music by Sam Davis. Dick Scanlan serves as the script consultant.
The cast Off-Broadway is made up of Kaitlyn Black, Chris Alvarado, Jonathan Gregg, Eric Lockley, Megan Sikora, Liz Wisan. Jillian Gottlieb, and Jonathan Wagner.
#DateMe is produced Off-Broadway by Elizabeth Williams and Alexander with Remmel Dickinson, Benjamin Lowy, and Adrian Salpeter.
