One Audience Member
One blind date!
There’s nothing like the thrill of a first date... anything can happen!
In the smash-hit play Blind Date, you’ll experience all the exhilaration and excitement of new love as Mimi goes on a blind date with a different man every night—plucked right out of the audience!
Direct from critically acclaimed, sold-out runs in New York, Toronto, and London’s West End, this fast and funny fusion of improvisation, theatre, and social experiment is sure to make you fall in love with Mimi and celebrate her audience-member-turned-Romantic-Hero!
“Fearless…and very funny!”
—New York Times
“★★★★ The concept is bullet proof.”
—The Guardian UK
“A flight of theatrical fancy that is
“Irresistible, cheeky and charming evening”
—New York Daily News
“The perfect marriage of theatre and comedy.”
After two successful runs at the World Stage Festival at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto in 2009 & 2010, Blind Date was picked up by Broadway Producer Kevin McCollum (RENT, Avenue Q, MoTown) and has since toured across Canada, the US, off-Broadway, and in London’s West End, with no end in sight. There are currently a total of five women trained to play “Mimi” in the original version of Blind Date, with a combined total of over 450 performances under their belts.
In the fall of 2016, Blind Date will receive a queer make-over and open the season at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto with lesbian and gay clowns alternating in the lead role.
