It Shoulda Been You

Shimberg Playhouse @ the Straz Center  |  $26

A world where nothing is what it seems, religions collide, Machiavellian plots are revealed, promises are broken, secrets are exposed, and hope springs from the most unlikely of places… Is it the latest headlines from CNN and FoxNews? No, it’s just the Steinberg-Howard wedding.

mad Theatre of Tampa presents It Shoulda Been You, a charming, funny, and original Broadway musical. The show invites you to a wedding day that you’ll never forget, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places. The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And, when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride”! It’s up to the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after in this musical comedy for anyone who ever had parents.

Review

“it’s a guaranteed good time. Imagine the tickle of champagne bubbles in your nose, and that’s the feeling you get while watching it. Giddy, goofy elation.”

“Mendoza has always been outstanding in the various productions I’ve seen her in, but her performance here is some of her best work ever…. And man, can she sing!”

“Each castmate has his or her standout musical moment where they get to show off all of their mighty vocals, and this is where the production really shines…What a cast!”
