More Information


The longest-running off-Broadway musical covers “everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit!” The hilarious series of vignettes about love and relationships has been called “The battle of the heterosexes” and “Seinfeld set to music.” Its situations are so universal — pickup lines, first dates, newborns, in-laws — that it’s been translated into 13 languages and performed all over the world…and now it’s coming to Alameda!
