More love! ‘First Date’ Broadway casting announced

Local audiences were passionate about “First Date,” a 2012 co-production of the 5th Avenue Theatre and ACT. Producer Junkyard Dog was smitten, too; it was announced in March that the show would be heading to Broadway. Now, it’s time for casting news: Zachary Levi, of TV’s “Chuck,” will make his Broadway debut as Aaron, the male lead; Krysta Rodriguez (TV’s “Smash,” Broadway’s “The Addams Family”) will play his date, Casey. Also in the cast: Sara Chase, Kristoffer Cusick, Blake Hammond and Kate Loprest.

Written by Austin Winsberg, Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, the show is directed by the 5th Ave’s own Bill Berry. Performances start July 9 and the show opens Aug. 8 at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre. More info here.
