I'm glad I saw it by myself FIRST before I'll take my husband. I laughed out loud at lines he would not find amusing, or take personally. Morrie Bobrow's wordplay is simply amazing! What an amazingly talented twosome. Highly recommend!

This funny, incisive show, now in its second hit year, sings of the different perspectives of men and women in relationships -- from initial excitement, romance, possessiveness and jealousy to the need for privacy and the problems of closeness. The show was nominated for four San Francisco Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Awards, including Best Cast and Best Musical.
Written and directed by Morris Bobrow
Jennifer Ekman is excited to be in her second Morris Bobrow production after performing in Shopping! The Musical for eight months. She has performed with theatre groups all over the Bay Area, including 42nd Street Moon, Theatre 39 at Pier 39 and Diablo Light Opera Company (now Diablo Theatre Company), among others. Favorite roles include Cathy in The Last Five Years (Masquers Playhouse), Janine in Ben Franklin in Paris (42nd Street Moon) and, of course, various roles in Shopping! The Musical (AWAT Productions). She received a BA in Drama and a minor in Vocal Performance at Ithaca College and continues her studies at Studio ACT when she has the time.
Scott Gessford is also thrilled to be "back with the gang" performing in his second Morris Bobrow show, having spent a year in Shopping! The Musical. His other Bay Area credits include tick…tick…Boom! and Falsettos for Theatre Rhinoceros, Putting It Together at Custom House Theatre, and The Rocky Horror Show with Ray of Light Theatre Company.
