Anthony Pinnunziato loves Andrew Polinski and has proposed to him. Anthony's very traditional Italian mother, Angela, insists that they have a Catholic wedding with Father Rosalia presiding. Given the Vatican's position on same-sex marriages, this presents a challenge. Angela also insists that Andrew's mother fly in from Florida to attend the wedding, set to take place in the fanciest Italian restaurant. But Andrew's mother still refuses to talk to her gay son. The biggest challenge of all may come from Gregorio, Andrew's spurned ex-lover. He threatens to scuttle the proceedings by revealing a nasty secret about Andrew. Will love conquer all? Will a large, loving Italian family come together, despite multiple obstacles, to celebrate the marriage of two men deeply in love? Written by Anthony Wilkinson. Directed by Gianfranco Terrin.

"If you can put aside all the accent incongruities, and the scenery-chewing, and the grammar-school-level script, I think you'll have a lot of fun at this one. And isn't that the goal of most theatre to begin with? Viva Italia!"

"The real joy of this play should be the journey to get there, although technical issues on opening night disrupted the flow of the action, which could have used another week of rehearsal to tighten up the scene transitions. The overall feeling I got from the continuous antics is that perhaps this show would be better suited to more intoxicated, late-night crowds who would, no doubt, laugh hysterically at all the farcical characters and situations."

"The method that this production executes itself is presented in a frantic stance, full of characters that are comical, cartoonish (in a good way), and rather outlandish. This technique adds to the humor this play shows itself."
