ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – I Take This Man will be staged at the First Avenue Playhouse, 123 First Ave., through Feb. 23.
The story is about what happens after lovely young Gideon Hollis spots an unconscious man in a tank top and shorts lying in Copley Square just after all other Boston Marathon racers have crossed the finish line. She reasons that since nice guys finish last, this must be Mr. Right. She has a helpful policeman tote him to her apartment, shocking her roommate whose fiancé is due for a dinner date.
When the comatose dreamboat revives and cannot remember who he is, Giddy tells him they are married and then regrets her subterfuge when he tries to be a loving husband. Complications escalate at a furious pace in this production that is perfect for the entire family.
Tickets are available for 8:30 p.m. shows on Fridays and Saturdays through Feb. 23; 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21; and 2:30 p.m. Sunday Feb. 17.
Admission is $22 for all performances, except Sunday, Feb. 17 when senior admission is $18. Dinner packages are available.
Reservations are available by calling 732-291-7552.
