Yayy! You have several out-of-town loved ones who officially responded ‘yes’ to your wedding invitation! Not only are you excited to see them, but it’s likely they’re equally as ecstatic to celebrate. It goes without saying they’ll be many guests who will be traveling far and wide to be a part of your wedding day, so it’s always a great idea to plan some extra [fun] activities during your wedding weekend. Not only will your guests appreciate the gesture, but it’s also a wonderful way to spend some extra time with family and friends. Not sure what kind of activities to host? We particularly love venturing into New York City to see a Broadway musical! It Shoulda Been You, a new musical comedy [directed by Emmy and Tony Award-winnder David Hyde Pierce] is opening this spring at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street).
In the hilarious and heartwarming new musical It Shoulda Been You, it’s a culture clash for the ages when two families from wildly different backgrounds come together to celebrate a wedding. As if the union wasn’t complicated enough, the bride’s ex-boyfriend arrives, bringing the wedding to a screeching halt and throwing both families into hysterical chaos. Plots are hatched, promises broken, secrets exposed – and the bride’s resourceful sister is left to turn an unmitigated disaster into happily ever after. With an original book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove and music by Barbara Anselmi, It Shoulda Been You puts a refreshingly modern spin on the traditional wedding comedy, proving that when it comes to wedding day insanity, it’s all relative. Performances of It Shoulda Been You begin on March 17, 2015, with an opening night date set for Tuesday, April 14, 2015.
