While we're not really sure of the moral to that story (except maybe to hit the 7-Eleven before the wedding, just in case), it made us realize something we thought we'd never say: Weddings are really kinda fun. That statement is, of course, completely false if attending one includes donning an ill-fitting taffeta bridesmaid dress only to split the ass out of it during the "Cotton-eyed Joe" at the reception. But we digress. The whole hitching thing is exceptionally entertaining when it comes to people-watching and a seriously rowdy sort of fun, even more so if it's Tony N' Tina's Wedding.
The off-Broadway show is completely interactive, with audiences attending the ceremony, walking the receiving line and attending a crazy, festive and super-Italian reception complete with the Italian Buffet of Love. Dance with the bridesmaids (watch those seams), flirt with groomsmen and find out all sorts of "family" gossip in the loo as the actors stay in character throughout the entire shindig. Big hair, taffeta, loud in-laws and the occasional chauvinistic groomsman bring this show so close to home you'll feel like you should have brought a gift...or at least stopped off at the store on the way.
