With Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro and Music by Jimmy Roberts, this celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship.” Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”
The four person cast features Michael DeMocko, Lindsay Yarbrough, Jay Morgan and Sophia Masterson. It is directed and choreographed by Cory Boyas with Michelle Neal as musical director.
Michael DeMocko first appeared in this show at the Manatee Players in 2007. Lindsay Yarbrough and Sophia Masterson appeared in BRIGADOON earlier this season and Jay Morgan most recently appeared with the Manatee Players in GODSPELL in October.
