Naked Blind Date, a New York-based play about a blind date, is set to hit Broadway this spring.
The show, which tells the story of a young woman and a blind man who meet and fall in love, will debut at the Bowery Theater in Manhattan this April.
The Broadway premiere of Naked Blind date will mark the first time the play has been staged on Broadway.
The play, based on the memoir of a blind dating service founder, is the brainchild of the late Jerry Falwell, the founder of Liberty University, and was conceived after Falwell became the keynote speaker at the National Association for the Blind Convention in 2005.
The production was originally staged in 2009, but was postponed several times.
The New York Times reports that the play will be the first of its kind to be staged on the big screen.
The company behind Naked Blind Dates, Naked Blind Productions, is based in Austin, Texas, and will use actors in the show, who will wear masks to protect their identities, according to the Times.
“The company was originally set up in Austin for the purpose of bringing together actors and directors who share a passion for performing blind dating,” said John A. Kohn, president of Naked Bids.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring Naked Blind dates to Broadway, and we’re thrilled with the success of the company.
We are also thrilled that a play of this magnitude can be produced on the small screen.
We hope the play is a beacon of hope to many blind people and their families, who might not know a single person with a disability,” he added.
A spokesman for the New York Public Theater declined to comment on the production.
“Naked dates is a play we’re proud of,” said Thea Sklar, a partner in Naked Bides.
“It’s an extraordinary show that has been so thoroughly researched and rehearsed by a professional team.
The cast has also made sure to make their voices heard, with the participation of people of color.”
A trailer for the play was shown at the premiere.
“If you’re interested in hearing more about Naked Blind dating and its future, this is a great time to get in touch,” said Jennifer E. Tisch, executive director of the National Alliance for the Advancement of Colored People.
It’s an opportunity to hear a real, honest conversation about how our culture is shaped by discrimination and bias.” “
This is a show that’s based on true stories, so there is no way to hide the truth.
It’s an opportunity to hear a real, honest conversation about how our culture is shaped by discrimination and bias.”
Naked Blind Dating was originally scheduled to be on Broadway in March, but it was postponed after a major controversy that erupted after a performance.
Theatre director Lisa Bowers had invited the play to be rehearsed on Broadway, but the producers pulled the plug after a public outcry.
“What the public has asked is why didn’t they give us the right to make a play for the big stage?” said Tisch.
“But I don’t believe it was about that, it was because we felt it needed to be in the big time,” she added.
The theater, which was named after Falco, a former vice president of Liberty, and his wife, Susan, has been working with the producers on the project for a few years.
“I was thrilled when we were approached to do this,” said Tsch.
“One of the great things about the Falwell Foundation is that we are always looking for ways to do more with the money we raise.”
