Open: 07/27/17- Close: 07/29/17 I AM, I WILL, I DO
As the owners of “Party City Now” rebrand their wedding business to embrace marriage equality, Dave, their gay Music Director, has never felt more alone. Doomed to a life of playing weddings, Dave longs for a love of his own. But, when he’s forced to sing a duet with Human Rights Attorney, Harris, sparks ignite and hope is born. As three diverse couples struggle to find compromise, this new romantic musical comedy I Am, I Will, I Do teaches us that perhaps being “outside the norm” is the new normal. Amas Musical Theatre has been a major supporter in the development of this show over the past few years.
