The title song is 'Work in Progress,' written by Maria Gentile and Scott Evan Davis, who also direct the show.

Melissa E. Driscol’s cabaret debut was in 2005 with For a Good Time Call . . . , a show written by Driscol and Hannah Ingram. Melissa started writing 20 Years of Dating . . . while in Italy last year. Inspired by dating a young man from Naples, as well as all of the amazing scenery, she could not wait to get back to the Duplex to share these fun stories. Melissa is a 6-year member of the Duplex family and can be seen every week at The Duplex Piano Bar on Monday and Tuesday nights.
