Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

It is so refreshing to come across a situation where aspiring creative artists are given a chance to showcase their talents. Round One Cabaret provided that opportunity and we really enjoyed it. Because of its format, the program was a mix of works by a number of different composers and lyricists. We liked some more than others, but the overall quality level was very good and the troupe that performed each piece was talented and engaging. We applaud the members of Not Quite Opera, the production company, for carrying out its mission of incubating new musicals, and hope they will stage more events like Round One Cabaret.
