One actor. One audience member. One blind date.

Experience all the exhilaration and excitement of new love as Mimi goes on a different blind date each night, with a willing gentleman from the audience! Straight from sold-out runs in New York, London’s West End, and Toronto, this fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants fusion of clown, improv, theatre, and social experiment is sure to make you fall in love with Mimi and celebrate her audience-member-turned-Romantic-Hero!

Running time: Approx. 70–100 min (average 85 min; no intermission)
