Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as "public lying," with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-sized shepherd's crooks. Embrace vaudevilliany with today's Groupon: for $42, you get one ticket to My Big Gay Italian Wedding at the 174-seat St. Luke’s Theatre in Hell’s Kitchen (a $77 value). Today’s Groupon can be used for 1 of 20 performances (see sidebar for a full list of dates) and does not include the $2.50 per order processing fee.
My Big Gay Italian Wedding tells the musically comedic tale of a wedding gone awry, with best-laid plans turning into farcical fiasco for Andrew and Anthony, two soon-to-be newlyweds attempting to keep their sanity among sabotaging exes and needling mothers. With a ruthless pursuit of hilarity and musical numbers that convince toes to tap even after a long day of foot crocheting, this critically adored off-Broadway production sports a stellar cast of stardusted faves, including Marty Thomas from Broadway’s Xanadu and Wicked and Ilene Kristen from One Life to Live. Regular celebrity-guest appearances, which have included Lance Bass and Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, keep audiences guessing about which cast members are supposed to be on stage and which have simply gotten lost on their way from the lobby.
- From now on you can keep your Shakespeare and Ibsen because I'll be kiki-ing and carrying on with the crazy cast of characters at St. Luke's. I loved it. – Mickey Boardman, Paper
