Rebecca Northan’s Blind Date hits New York

Congratulations to Rebecca Northan, whose daring improv show, Blind Date, opened off-Broadway last week to rave reviews. Rebecca is an alumnus of The Second City's Toronto Mainstage, and first performed Blind Date at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre.

The show features Ms. Northan in clown nose and red dress as Mimi, a Parisian romantic waiting at a café. When her blind date fails to arrive, Mimi selects a new unsuspecting man from the audience each night to join her on stage, and be her date for the rest of the 90-minute show.

New York critics have called the show "a high-wire act of improvised theater" (New York Post) and "screamingly funny." (Theatremania).

Blind Date was brought to New York's Ars Nova Theatre by multiple Tony Award winning producer, Kevin McCollum (Rent, Avenue Q, The Drowsey Chaperone), and runs through December 20th.
