The David Hyde Pierce-directed musical It Shoulda Been You, which had previously been eyeing a Broadway run in fall 2012, is still looking at making an appearance on the Main Stem. Pierce told the Hollywood Reporter that he hopes to open the show, starring Tony winner Tyne Daly, in the coming season or early 2015.
Featuring music by Barbra Anselmi and a book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove, It Shoulda Been You made its world premiere in 2011 at New Jersey's George Street Playhouse.
The show follows a Jewish bride as she readies to marry her Catholic boyfriend. When the bride’s ex-boyfriend shows up, the perfect wedding starts to unravel, leaving the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after. Along with Daly, the cast of the George Street Playhouse production featured Tony winner Harriet Harris, Tony nominee Howard McGillin, Tom Deckman, Carla Duren, Jessica Hershberg, Edward Hibbert, Curtis Holbrook, Lisa Howard, Mylinda Hull, Matthew Hydzik, David Josefsberg and Richard Kline.
