Broadway First Dates: Patti Murin and Colin Donnell

They laboured to keep their love a secret during Shakespeare in the Park, but it was a lost cause.

Patti Murin (Frozen) and Colin Donnell (Chicago Med, Songs for a New World) had known each other for a long time before they actually started dating. It was the summer of 2013 when they finally went out for the first time, after having been cast in Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers's Shakespeare in the Park musical Love's Labour's Lost. They tried to make sure nobody in their cast found out…but, as Murin says, "that worked for about four minutes." The rest is history.
