The second longest running Off-Broadway Show in history finally arrived in Hamburg! Hilariously funny, not to be missed. 

How does one deal with romantic love and marriage in today’s world? This is the question posed by this delightful revue-like musical as it moves from couples on their rst disastrous date, through courtship, the ups and downs of marriage and raising children, then divorce and old age. Serious stuff is always the basis of the best comedy, and this fast paced show is no exception. It employs various musical styles from the classic ballad to country- western, Latino, pop and rock. The show’s magical balance of comic and tender moments, timeless content, hilarious dialogue and clever lyrics, made it the second longest running off- Broadway musical in history with over 5000 performances. It was also nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.
