Following their heart-wrenching production of Broadway classic Rent last season, Glasgow’s very own Theatre South Productions return to EPT tomorrow evening with another dazzling production to add to their repertoire, The Wedding Singer.
It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother’s basement, is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his fiancé, Linda, leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets an Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. Only trouble is Julia is about to be married, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might be the coolest person in the room.
