It looks like the David Hyde Pierce-helmed It Shoulda Been You is Broadway-bound at last. The musical had been eyeing a Broadway run since fall 2012. According to a recent casting notice, rehearsals are set to begin on or around January 13, 2015, suggesting an early spring opening on the Great White Way. Many of the principal roles have already been cast, according to the breakdown. No official word yet on if that includes the show's original star, Tony winner Tyne Daly.
Featuring music by Barbra Anselmi and a book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove, the tuner 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. Noah Racey will choreograph.
It Shoulda Been You premiered in 2011 at New Jersey's George Street Playhouse. In addition to Daly, the cast included Tony winner Harriet Harris, Howard McGillin, Tom Deckman, Carla Duren, Jessica Hershberg, Edward Hibbert, Curtis Holbrook, Lisa Howard, Mylinda Hull, Matthew Hydzik, David Josefsberg and Richard Kline.
