What to hear more Bad Dates? Elizabeth Aspenlieder stars as Haley Walker in Bad Dates, running March 19 – April 12 at Merrimack Repertory Theatre.  A hilarious and touching comedy, Bad Dates follows the story of Haley Walker, a single mother with a teenage daughter, a screamingly stressful job, and a collection of 600 pairs of shoes as she tries to find love in the big city. Audiences relive her rotten romances as Tibetan Buddhists and even the Romanian mob get in the way of her finding “Mr. Right.” Her story is a love and fashion odyssey that has had audiences across the country rolling in the aisles!


“…A poignant slice of urban life that also happens to be drop-dead funny.” The Wall Street Journal


Brandeis University theatre professor Adrianne Krstansky, director of Bad Dates, shares “Working with Elizabeth on this wonderful play by Theresa Rebeck has been a hilarious and, at the same time, quite poignant ride. I think anyone who knows what it is like to struggle to raise a child, succeed in a job, keep a roof over their head and dare to find a person with whom to share all the madness will find themselves in this story. Although the play is definitely about the joys and sometimes horror of dating, it is also about our real need for community and the courage it takes to stay put and ask for help from the people around us, rather than thinking yet another exit door will land us in an easier life.”
