My Big Gay Italian Wedding, by Anthony J. Wilkinson, will be making it's debut in the Sunshine state this weekend on April 5thand 6that Old School Square in Delray Beach. The hit long running Off-Broadway original of what is now a four-part series celebrated its first opening at the Actors Playhouse on November 2nd, 2003.

The show was published in 2009 by Samuel French and has played in major US cities including El Paso, Omaha, Louisville, Los Angeles, Fountain City, Greensboro, Tulsa, Buffalo, Phoenix, Atlantic City, Concord, Lansing, Durham and many other local colleges across the state.

My Big Gay Italian Wedding satirizes the controversy surrounding same-sex marriage while drawing on larger than life gay and Italian characters. Anthony Pinnunziato, a gay Italian-American from a large chaotic family, wants to marry his boyfriend Andrew Polinski in a traditional Italian ceremony. Anthony's overbearing mother won't give her blessing unless Andrew's estranged mother also gives her blessing and the ceremony is performed by a priest. Matters are further complicated by Andrew's ex-boyfriend, intent on breaking up the couple.

Wilkinson who originated his role of "Anthony Pinnunziato" in New York in 2003. Wilkinson stated; "I could not be more excited to join the Delray Company of this production and be a part of the Florida debut, it has always been one of my favorite travel destinations and I am thrilled to be a part of the opening."
