For four performances only, September 1st - 4th, the stars of the hit Bravo reality series "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" will join the cast of My Big Gay Italian Wedding. Teresa Giudice, Ashley Holmes, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Lauren Manzo will assume the roles of the Wedding Officiator, Connie Scuccifuffio, Toniann Naso, Angela Pinnunziato and Maria Pinnunziato, respectively, in the Off-Broadway comedy now playing at St. Luke's Theatre, 308 West 46th Street. Dina Manzo, one of the stars of seasons one and two of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" and a producer of My Big Gay Italian Wedding, will make a special introduction before each of these performances. 

For the four performances featuring "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars, My Big Gay Italian Wedding will have a special performance schedule: September 1st, 2nd and 3rd at 8PM with a 2PM matinee on September 4th. Tickets for these four performances are $79.50.

Planning a wedding can be hell... or a hell of a lot of fun! At My Big Gay Italian Wedding, Off-Broadway's hilarious new comedy by Anthony Wilkinson, two handsome grooms, one overbearing Italian mother, a jealous ex-boyfriend, the wedding planner from Hell, and an assortment of kooky family and friends all gather together for an evening with lots of laughs and lots of heart.

When the original production of My Big Gay Italian Wedding premiered in 2003, the idea of gay marriage was a fantasy. In 2010, the International debate on Gay Marriage reaches new heights: Gay Marriage is now legal in eight and a half countries (Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and parts of Mexico) and six states in the US (Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and District of Columbia). So playwright Anthony Wilkinson has gone back to the typewriter and brought his acclaimed comedy into this new era of hope and optimism for same sex marriage.
