Date Night

World premières are uncommon in our theater community. Sometimes, in fact, it's sufficiently exciting if the same 6-year-old play isn't presented in multiple venues on the same evening. But not only do we have a world première right now -- Love Makes the World Go ’Round, through Sunday, February 17, at Phoenix Theater -- but the show's musical arranger is currently here in town. Not only that, he's playing the role of Henry, the pianist at a swanky Manhattan piano bar. Not only that, he's Brad Ellis, the arranger and pianist for TV's Glee. (Man, these things practically write themselves!)

Ellis collaborated with writer Duane Poole to create the story of three bar patrons -- an almost-married woman, a possibly-almost-divorcée, and an older single lady. Their differing perspectives on romance are all wrapped up with the sweet songs of Bob Merrill (Funny Girl, "Honeycomb," "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?").

Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 3 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 3, 6:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Jan. 23. Continues through Feb. 16, 2013
