This New Off-Broadway Show is Basically ‘Tinder: The Musical’

by Gabriela Vascimini · July 2, 2019

    Plans for this weekend? How about a dating app detox? Stop swiping through Tinder and Bumble and experience the online dating world in a whole new way. Grab your friends (or a date, if you’re ahead of the game) and head over to the Westside Theatre to watch other people struggle through the agonizing yet hilarious world of online dating in #DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment. It is a new, interactive, off-Broadway show fresh from Chicago. 

    It all started as a scientific experiment about the online search for love, as 38 “undateable” profiles were placed on an online dating site to see if anyone would engage with them. The online conversations and interactions that followed were tracked, measured, and documented.  The outcome? A unique show that’s just as unpredictable and entertaining as online dating itself. 

    Hailed as “the perfect night out” by Time Out Chicago, #DateMe’s unexpected twists include improvisation and live, interactive multimedia. So, give your Tinder finger a break and prepare for a “laugh-out-loud comedy experience.” (Chicago Splash Magazine
