RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway,

A bright, warm comedy about dreams, life and love that had critics and audiences cheering at its premiere. Danny Fleming had convinced himself that life's dreams can't be anything more than dreams. Then back into his life walks his eighth grade flame, Meredith O'Connor - only now it's Sister Meredith Louise, and it becomes a New Year's Eve to remember.

"Considerable charm, zest, imagination, and expertise..." - Variety

"A lovely riff of magic." - The Boston Globe

"What a delight!" - The Los Angeles Times

"You can't help cheering." - New York Post

"A crisp and neatly starched little heart-warmer." - Newsday

First Night was first produced by the Mount Holyoke College Summer Theatre, then by the Merrimack Repertory Theatre.  Produced in Boston by Tommy Brent, Tony Capodilupo and the Theatre Lobby.  Produced in New York by Scottie Held and Ann Baker, at the Westside Theatre.
