The One

The downpour was at its most severe during the Zachary Levi/Krysta Rodriguez duet “First Impression” and there were a lot of poking umbrellas to content with. Showing it first would have made a bad impression.

Further description of the show: “Dinner is served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines.”

    I hear Mr. Levi is a Broadway Diva. Anyone who has seen the show was not impressed. They do like Krysta. Levi’s understudy is much better.
