There’s a new (hot) villain of the bridal party. Gabe Bowling will step into My Big Gay Italian Wedding at off-Broadway’s St. Luke’s Theatre beginning July 5. He will assume the role of Gregorio, the misunderstood villain, replacing Jonathan Wiener. The show is written by and stars Anthony K. Wilkinson.
Bowling appeared in the Chicago cast of Million Dollar Quartet, in addition to Because of Winn Dixie and SPANK! The 50 Shades Parody.
Now in its eleventh year, My Big Gay Italian Wedding is loosely based on Wilkinson’s own wacky Italian family. The show tells the story of Anthony Pinnunziato (Wilkinson), a gay Italian-American who wants to marry his boyfriend Andrew in a traditional wedding ceremony.
In addition to Wilkinson and Wiener, My Big Gay Italian Wedding features Hugh Hysell, Donna Castellano, Marissa Rosen, Debra Toscano, Liz Gerecitano, Meagan Robar, Erik Ransom, Chad Kessler, Brandon Goins, Joe Scanio, Brant Michaels, Josh Drake, Marie Fontaine and Fred Ross.
