Henry Mann, a thirty-something New Yorker, is eager to settle down…or so he thinks.  After receiving an invitation to his ex-fiancée’s wedding, Henry ­– with help from his lesbian roommate, Gwen – embarks on a quest to find his perfect date in this new musical comedy. Featuring an original score by Douglas J. Cohen (No Way to Treat a Lady), The Evolution of Mann is “A great date musical… a witty how-to for establishing lasting relationships.” (BroadwayWorld).

Music and Lyrics by Douglas J. Cohen
