Created By Charissa Bertels, Christian Duhamel, & Ed Bell

From a chance encounter to the unlikeliest of friendships, Charissa discovers there’s much she can learn from her surprising new companion. Based on the true story of Broadway performer Charissa Bertels, My 80-Year-Old Boyfriend is an incredible musical tale of the most unlikely pair, as they reach across generational barriers to find friendship and learn a bit more about themselves.

Reviews and Accolades

“Charissa Bertels does it all, truly. Enjoy her singing and dancing and her fervent homage to a special friend. But in case I failed to articulate its comedic premise, I should remind you that MY 80 YEAR-OLD BOYFRIEND is very funny. If nothing else, give yourself a treat and laugh your head off. After all we’ve been through, I can’t think of anything more productive.”
