TAP Taps Into Online Dating

The Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP) and Riverway Studio of East Haddam present Methuselah’s Guide to Online Dating (For Those With Reading Glasses) starring Todd Little, Ira Sakolsky, Becca Atkins, Suzanne Powers, and Elijah Manning, June 18 – July 3. Methuselah’s Guide takes a comic look at the world of online dating based on the improvisational theatrical techniques developed by Paul Sills and Viola Spolin.

Created by Todd Alan Little and Ira Sakolsky, this hilarious and touching look at the search for love in the digital age will make you laugh, cry, and maybe feel like you are not alone.
