I DO! has always been a adored - New York Magazine stated "The score is a delight from top to bottom,” and the Associated Press describes it as “Nothing but sheer pleasure. Yes, yes, pleasure all the way. A Dazzler. Beguiling.”

Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is hungry for education.
