Affair to Remember

Ah, the big, fancy wedding. At least half the guests (the male half) would rather be somewhere else. The bride is exhausted. The groom is either hung over or just generally looking pole-axed. The lines for food and the bar are long. The clothes are uncomfortable. How is so much money spent on a bet — marriage — that has less than even odds of making good? Seriously, isn’t there a better way to invest that dough? That’s pretty much the question tackled by A Catered Affair, a musical — with book by Harvey Fierstein and score by John Bucchino — being staged by Theatre Three through November 12 on the Norma Young Arena Stage, 2800 Routh St., No. 168. Friday’s performance is at 8 p.m., with a special student matinee at 10 a.m. Friday. For more showtimes and tickets, call 214-871-3300 or visit
Thursdays, Sundays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 13. Continues through Nov. 12, 2011
