The second-longest running off-Broadway musical is presented in the form of a series of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships. The play's tagline is “Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.” With few exceptions, the scenes stand independent of the others, but progress in a fashion designed to suggest an overall arc to relationships throughout the course of one's life. A first date, for example, comes before scenes discussing marriage, and scenes discussing marriage come before those discussing child rearing.
