Tony winner Tyne Daly stars in a new musical comedy where the clash of two families turns the perfect wedding into chaos, directed by Emmy and Tony Award winner David Hyde Pierce. More…
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.
See it if you enjoy being mindlessly entertained. Nothing new: the happy bride is hokey and, yet, satisfying. Strong performances with meh material.
