Oh my gosh! This play was amazing! Anyone that has had an unsuccessful date in Los Angeles can relate. You will laugh and have an amazing time while the talented cast entertains you! Kudos to Nicole Dillman for writing such a good comedy! Really, truly enjoyed it and would love to see it again. I definitely recommend it! ... full review

This great comedy really hit home with relatable stories that were well written. I needed a laugh when I attended and it did not disappoint. The writer nailed the character development with great comedy! The actors seemed to embody their characters perfectly and did a wonderful job. Run, don't walk to this gem! I didn't want it to end.... full review

This show had me laughing from minute one! Go see it! All of the characters are so funny and dynamic — and I could relate to all of them! I definitely have been on dates with all of these personalities (and probably been those dates sometimes too). It was both a spot on and subtle commentary of today’s society. I loved the waiter’s facial expressions, and could not stop laughing every time he looked at the audience like “the rest of the people in this restaurant are crazy!” You’ve got to see it for yourself though, the ending definitely made me laugh and surprised me!!... full review

I thought it was great. It was well casted. The writing was pretty impressive and laugh out loud funny. I really felt the comedic energy and natural ability of each performer on stage. I think the length of it was perfect. I enjoyed each character’s representation of what real life first dates can feel like. This was a very enjoyable experience. ... full review

First Dates was a show that really captured the full range of awkward that singles encounter in LA's dating scene. The performances were great, the waiter's little scenes were a riot, and the show was all around great fun!... full review

I had so much fun at this show! The script was really funny, and all of the actors had a comparable skill level. This was my first Fringe show, and I don't regret it!... full review

GONZALO PEREZ certified reviewer June 02, 2018
Great cast, great chemistry, and hilariously relatable characters. Nicole Dillman hit the nail in the head with her first production. As writer, director, and producer for First Dates, Nicole's theater debut was a spectacular one. The play will have you laughing from start to finish, as you are hit by a tragically accurate and funny representation of the dating scene in Los Angeles. Looking forward to seeing what comes next for this young talent.... full review
