BWW Reviews: GOING TO THE CHAPEL Opens at Cutting Edge TheaterBWW Reviews: GOING TO THE CHAPEL Opens at Cutting Edge Theater
by Heidi Scheuermann - Apr 4, 2015

Tonight, Cutting Edge Theater opened musical GOING TO THE CHAPEL, which centers on leading lady Betty Lou and her bridesmaids the week of her wedding. I find the content of this show incredibly timely and fitting for the beginning of spring in the New Orleans area as many deem this time of year "wedding season." And who doesn't get a kick out of all of the goofy traditions that ladies go through together to make sure their friend has the wedding celebration of the century? GOING TO THE CHAPEL is a jukebox musical featuring music of the 1960s, and more specifically the "girl groups" of the 1960s such as The Chiffons, The Shirelles, and The Supremes. Featuring a cast of four amazing ladies, this show is sure to keep you laughing and bopping along to some great tunes! (more...)
