Watch Samantha Barks sing First Date song Safer ahead of the show’s upcoming virtual production.

Barks is set to star alongside Simon Lipkin in a filmed, virtual production of the musical which ran on Broadway in 2013.

The piece, which follows two strangers set up on a blind date, will be filmed at Crazy Coqs at the Brasserie Zédel and made available to watch between October 22 and 24.

Alongside Barks and Lipkin, the cast will feature Oscar Conlon-Morrey, Nicholas McLean and Danielle Steers.

A teaser for the show reads: “Do opposites really attract? Cool chick Casey (Samantha Barks) and tightly wound Aaron (Simon Lipkin) are hoping so. These two New York City singles have been set up by friends and family, but from the outset this ‘First Date’ seems to be doomed.

“The two have nothing in common… But with the help of a meddling but well-meaning waiter, and a host of other characters along the way, can this mismatched pair turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?”

First Date is written by Austin Winsberg and has music and lyrics from Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner.

Produced by Lambert Jackson Productions, the online production will feature direction and professional videography by Dean Johnson, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins and musical direction by Josh Winstone.
