What's It About?
Party of One is an original musical revue about being single. The tone is mostly humorous, but, at times
touching and poignant. The songs and sketches focus on such topics as the frustrations of dating,
relationships, making connections, communicating, the pressures to hook up with another, discrimination
against singles and the joys and rewards of singlehood. It presents the views of both sexes. The tone is
upbeat and fun. Audiences relate to it. Party of One appeals to audiences of all demographic groups, being a
show "for everyone who is, or has ever been, single." The show is in typical revue format, with a few singers
and piano or small musical ensemble. The set, props and costumes are economical, with the focus on the
material and acting.
