About This Show

Blind Date is a backstage glimpse of one of the 20th century’s landmark historical events. In an era before Twitter and eHarmony, two of history’s oddest couples seek to thaw the seemingly intractable relationship between the United States and Soviet Russia. Despite their advisors’ efforts to keep them on track, Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev eschew conventional protocols to discuss pop culture and old movies — while their wives mirror their husbands’ negotiations in a passive-aggressive tango over tea and fashion choices. Blind Date is a compelling and edgy comic journey through the intricacies of statesmanship.
