The Wedding Singer
Based on the wildly popular 1998 film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, the Tony-nominated musical The Wedding Singer garners laughs and feel-good heart tugs in a romantic flashback to the 1980s. The story follows Robbie Hart, who’s happily engaged and rocking audiences as the crooner for a wedding band. When his fiancée jilts him at the altar, the performer goes on a hilarious downward bender as he spoils gigs and bums out brides with his newfound disdain for romance. The clouds lift when Robbie falls for a waitress named Julia, spurring him to take another chance on love despite her being engaged to a shallow womanizer. Adapted for the stage by Chad Beguelin and longtime Sandler chum Tim Herlihy, with a score of infectious and funny songs from Matthew Sklar, the musical treats fans of the movie to extra doses of romance and nostalgia while keeping Sandler’s tunes “Grow Old With You” and “Somebody Kill Me” in the spotlight.
Dedicated to celebrating musical theater's past and present while paving the way toward its future, the Pittsburgh CLO lauds distinguished musical-theater folk while launching the careers of the next generation. Originally dubbed the Civic Light Opera Association, the Pittsburgh CLO launched in 1946 to much fanfare, including that of the Sun Telegraph, which declared "the CLO will inaugurate a cycle in the city's musical history that will outlive us all." Their assertion proved true—the CLO moved several times to support its expansion, established an Academy of Musical Theater, created the Gene Kelly Awards for Excellence in High School Musical Theater, and injected itself with an immortality serum. Its spot in Pittsburgh's cultural community solidified, the CLO continues to stage national tours and Broadway shows while cultivating homegrown talent with original premieres.
