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

Very good show. Based on previous reviews, I wasn't sure I was going to like this one...but I absolutely did. Great acting, many stellar performances, cleverly written play. I loved the IDOL format, but agree that the show was about an hour too long....I started getting tired near the end. My bigger problem with this show was the kinda odd audience, a couple who had really poor theatre etiquette (chewing gum loudly, eating from noisy plastic baggies, coming in late and cutting across stage, WEIRD).
