Media Society Announces First Date Available for Licensing

LOS ANGELES, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Having co-produced First Date through Altar Identity Studios, Media Society is proud to announce that the Broadway hit is now available for licensing through R&H Theatricals. Originally starring Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez on Broadway, the hilarious and poignant show was praised for delighting audiences, which the New York Times referred to as the "virtual laugh track" throughout the entire performance.

When dating newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey for a quick drink, their blind date turns into a hilarious, high-stakes dinner. The couple quickly finds they're not alone as Casey and Aaron's inner critics take on a life of their own and other restaurant patrons and wait staff get into the act. Dinner is served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines.

"The joy of FIRST DATE is that is tells a story we all know, and in some cases know all too well. Anyone, anywhere can relate to the terror of a first date and we have no doubt it will continue to resonate with audiences, just as it did on Broadway," said Wade Bradley, CEO and Founder of Media Society and President of Altar Identity Studios.

FIRST DATE was developed in Seattle by the 5th Avenue Theatre and A Contemporary Theater, and ran at ACT in early 2012 before arriving at Broadway's Longacre Theatre in August 2013, co-produced by Altar Identity Studios and Junkyard Productions (MEMPHIS).

The original musical features music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner (Disney's TWICE CHARMED) and a book by Austin Winsberg (TV's "Gossip Girl"). An Original Broadway Cast Recording, produced by Altar Identity Studios, is available through iTunes.

FIRST DATE is currently available for Professional Theatrical licensing, with performances beginning September 1, 2014.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
