An irresistible comedy for anyone who likes to laugh and loves a killer pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps! Restaurant manager and shoe connoisseur Haley Walker is re-entering the world of dating. From the privacy of her bedroom, she relates a series of hilarious, poignant and very real tales of her experiences while preparing for, and then recovering from, one dreadful date after another. But what’s with the hidden shoebox full of money? And why is the Romanian mob in an uproar?
Beth Broderick, star of the television sitcoms The Five Mrs. Buchanans and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, will star in the Southern California premiere of Theresa Rebeck’s comedy. The production will be directed by Judith Ivey, who also starred in The Five Mrs. Buchanans.
Bad Dates was first produced at Playwrights Horizons in 2003 starring Julie White. Rebeck’s other plays include Omnium Gatherum (co-written with Alexandra Gersten-Vasillaros), Spike Heels, and Loose Knit.

Her directing credits include the Alley Theater production of Steel Magnolias and the Off-Broadway production of Yeardley Smith’s solo show More.
