Make sure you have an envelope filled with a wad of cash, because tickets are now on sale for the 25th anniversary engagement of Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding! The long-running comedy is returning with a brand new contemporary setting and the show begins performances on March 5.
The remounting of the interactive comedy puts theater audiences in the middle of a big Italian ceremony at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis High School. Immediately following the nuptials, the bridal party will escort their family and friends through Times Square to Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, where guests will celebrate with lovebirds Tony and Tina, members of their outrageous families and get taken to Guy Fieri's Flavortown. Tony n' Tina's Wedding was created by the improv comedy troupe Artificial Intelligence and its success inspired a slew of copycat shows.
Tony n' Tina's Wedding spent its first 10 years at St. John's Church on Christopher Street with the reception above Gus’ Restaurant on Waverly. The show moved uptown to the Theater District in August 1998, where it ran for another 10 years.
