ABOUT THE PLAY:
It is based on the 1998 film of the same name. The musical revolves around Robbie, who sings at weddings, his failed relationship with his former fiancée, and his romance with a new love, Julia. This fabulous fun musical is romp thru the everything fun and delicious that the 80's had to offer. Upbeat, dance filled, and laugh out loud riot.
