Engaged couples can now take a night off from wedding planning stress with the uproarious Off-Broadway show, Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding. Known as the “Granddaddy of Interactive Theater,” the show takes center stage starting March 5, 2014 with a newly updated production in the heart of Times Square.
Perfect for couples, bachelor/bachelorette parties, bridal showers or just a fun night out on the town, audience members are the wedding guests and encouraged to optimize the experience by taking on the impromptu roles of Tony and Tina’s family and friends.
The two-part show begins with a sidesplitting ceremony at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School auditorium (120 W. 46th St.), followed by a short walk by the entire bridal party and audience through Times Square to a dedicated room at Food Network star Guy Fieri’s Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar (220 W. 44th St. – where “Fame” was filmed!). There, guests enjoy the hilarious reception complete with an Italian-style buffet dinner, cocktails, dancing to DJ Donnie Dolce, NYC's #1 wedding singer/DJ and surprise VIP guests (could Martha Stewart show up?).
Unlike Broadway shows, cell phone usage is highly encouraged during the proceedings, so audience members and the cast can utilize social media to real-time tweet each other, share photos and videos.
Other highlights of the revamped production:
· Surprise marriage proposals can be arranged in advance
· After attendance, guests receive a Thank You note from Tony and Tina
· Premium/family seating is available for bachelor/bachelorette parties, guys/girls’ night out
· Special on-site raffles and product giveaways during the reception
Performances begin Wednesday March 5th and run Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 7 PM, with matinees Saturday at 2pm & Sunday at 3 PM. Casting and design team will be announced shortly.
Tickets are $125 for “Friends” seating, with Premium/Family Seating available at $175 for all performances. Tickets are available by phone, toll free, at 866-811-4111 or online at www.TonyLovesTina.com, where you can see video, photos, and more. [Please inquire about discount promotion codes.]
I plan to be there!
