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."

"There's no more polished master of the original musical revue than Bobrow. He packs
lyrics with comic ideas." -San Franciso Chronicle

facility for taking almost any subject and writing sophisticated, witty and very incisive
lyrics plus equally infectious music." - Hollywood Drama-Logue

humanity and empathy." -Lifestyle
