It’s the ’80s. Robbie Hart lives in his grandmother’s basement in New Jersey and sings in a wedding band. His dreams of being a singer/songwriter are long gone, replaced now by a burning desire to find the right girl and settle down. When his fiancée leaves him standing at the altar, he becomes a wedding planner’s worst nightmare, taking out his bitterness on stage until his eye—and heart—turn to a new friend, Julia, but she’s engaged to a wealthy Wall Street broker.
The show includes adult language.
Show times are 7:30 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, May 12-14, and 2 p.m., Sunday, May 15. The musical is staged by James L. Crow with vocal direction by Beth Heuer, technical direction by Joselyn Ludtke, choreography by Tam Woodrow and assistant direction by Hannah Rodenbeck.
