By the power vested in us by the alley of Shubert, we now pronounce you officially open off-Broadway! Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, New York’s longest-running comedy, celebrates its return and opening night on April 28, just in time to celebrate its 25th (that’s silver, right?) anniversary. The groundbreaking interactive show stars Marilia Angeline and Joe Ferraro as the Bride and Groom, Valentina Lynne Nunzio and Anthony Angelo Nunzio (roles originated by the shows’ creators, Nancy Cassaro and Mark Nasser).
In the two-part event, audience members take on the roles of family and friends of the bride and groom. As with the original production, the show begins with a ceremony, which will now be held at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis High School. The bridal party will then escort their family and friends through the heart of Times Square and Shubert Alley to Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar. Once at Guy’s American, guests will enjoy an Italian-style buffet dinner, as well as cocktails and dancing all-night-long to DJ Donny Dulce.
The cast also features Chloë Patellis, Sam Masotto, Emily Dinova, Gregory Cioffi, Marissa Perry, Chris Lazzaro, Denise Fennell, John T. Lynes, Gus Theodoro, Silvana Mastrolia, Courtney Brooke Lauria, Rick Pasqualone, Debbie Pingitore, Annie Rachele Lanzillotto, Brad Martocello and Tim Monaghan.
