The Wedding Singer Musical
The Wedding Singer opens on Broadway tonight! I was lucky enough to see it earlier this month while it was still in previews and I definitely had a blast, especially with all of the 80′s references. Rita Gardner, who plays Robbie’s grandmother, gives a standout performance in a knee-slapping rap called "Move That Thang". Watch for that. I was on the floor the whole time! I wouldn’t go as far to say that The Wedding Singer is the new Hairspray but it comes close. Great set and costumes, memorable music and a good cast make it a solid show. I really enjoyed the songs "It’s Your Wedding Day", "Get Out Of The Dumpster", "Saturday Night In The City" and "Grow Old With You." You can’t go wrong with 80′s-pop, can you? The Wedding Singer soundtrack hasn’t been released yet but for now, you can sample two of the songs –
