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.
