About the show

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.
