"Go to Hanover Tavern with your loved one and feed your souls. You’ll be glad you said I Do! I Do!"


"The Cooks’ chemistry was natural..."
They "develop their respective characters with subtleties of complexity"

Richmond Times-Dispatch

This intimate musical written by the creators of The Fantasticks follows two soul-mates as they navigate the joys and challenges of a 50 year marriage. Set to a tuneful, charming score, I Do! I Do! is a nostalgic and humorous rediscovery of romance.  Press Release (pdf)

With undying respect, we dedicate this production of I Do! I Do! to the memories of:

Pete and Nancy KilgoreBarksdale Theatre co-founders who performed as Michael and Agnes in the extension of our 1970 production of I Do! I Do!, and

Lara St. Peter — mommy, actress, artist, teacher, and beloved wife of our former Associate Artistic Director Rick St. Peter, who left her family and friends far too soon.

Now and always, our cups runneth over with love.
