Broadway's Hilarious Musical Comedy IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU Opens This Week at the Miracle Theatre
In the hilarious and heartwarming musical It Shoulda Been You, it's a Culture Clash for the ages when two families from wildly different backgrounds come together to celebrate a wedding. 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, as if the union wasn't complicated enough, the bride's ex-boyfriend arrives, bringing the wedding to a screeching halt and throwing both families into hysterical chaos. Plots are hatched, promises broken, secrets exposed - and the bride's resourceful sister is left to turn an unmitigated disaster into happily ever after.
Director David Arisco has assembled an all-star cast to create the perfect wedding party including Erica Lustig as Rebecca Steinberg, Taylor Hilt Mitchell as Brian Howard, Cindy Pearce as Jenny Steinberg, Margot Moreland as Judy Steinberg, Oscar Cheda as Murray Steinberg, Mark A. Harmon as George Howard, Marcia McClain as Georgette Howard, Gabrielle Graham as Annie Shepard, Alexander Zenoz as Greg Madison, Tim Dolan as Marty Kaufman, Jeni Hacker as Mimsy/Aunt Sheila, Michael H. Small as Walt/Uncle Morty and Conor Walton as Albert.
The design and creative team for It Shoulda Been You includes Musical Direction by David Nagy, Choreography by Jeni Hacker, Scenic Design by Tim Bennett, Lighting Design by Eric Nelson, Sound Design by Shaun Mitchell, Costume Design by Ellis Tillman and Properties Design by Jodi Dellaventura.
