The Gallery Players present this farce set to music about the Steinberg wedding, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places. It’s a wedding day you’ll never forget! More…
The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And, when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride!” This is a musical comedy for anyone who ever had parents.
“There are many surprises and reveals in ‘It Shoulda Been You,’ performed to perfection in this hilarious production at The Gallery Players. The set and the costumes are impressive and perfect for this play. The musical numbers were well-performed and the direction was spot-on. The cast was a joy to watch. I highly recommend you see it. It is one of the best shows I have seen this season.” Full Review
“This farce is one big laugh riot from beginning to end. What seemingly starts out to be tensions revolving around the wedding of a single couple evolves into a romantic triangle involving three couples! And you are constantly surprised because you have no idea where the story is heading. In the end, the contradictions and dilemmas climax in a happy, romantic resolution for all three couples and their loved ones. This musical is one you must see!” Full Review
