WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - TheatreNOW's newest production gives people a look at some of the worst first dates.

Check, Please by Jonathan Rand is a series of vignettes about bad blind dates, with people like a mime, someone who dresses as a pirate, a sports fanatic and a mysterious foreign man.

"Most of the characters that they meet are definitely extreme," said director Mirla Criste.

"And that's where the humor lies," said TheatreNOW Executive Director Zach Hanner. "The show is really very funny. It's an ideal date night considering that all the dates go so disastrously on stage, I think it can only set up success for a date in the audience."

Check, Please

  • Fridays and Saturdays
  • Through Feb. 15
  • 7:00 p.m.
  • TheatreNOW

Tickets include a three-course meal.  There's a special four-course menu for the Valentine's Day production on February 14.
