Directed by Emmy and Tony Award-winner David Hyde Pierce (who is openly gay) in his Broadway directorial debut, It Shoulda Been You stars Tyne Daly, who is also a Emmy and Tony Award-winner, and Harriet Harris, a Tony Award-winner.
When It Shoulda Been You opened on Broadway, audiences were laughing their nuptials off. The hilarious and heartwarming musical is a culture clash for the ages when two families from wildly different backgrounds come together to celebrate a wedding. As if the union wasn’t complicated enough, the bride’s ex-boyfriend arrives, bringing the wedding to a screeching halt and throwing both families into chaos. Plots are hatched, promises broken, secrets exposed—and the bride’s resourceful sister is left to turn an unmitigated disaster into happily ever after. It Shoulda Been You puts a modern spin on the traditional wedding comedy, proving that when it comes to wedding day insanity, it’s all relative.
It Shoulda Been You features an original book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove and music by Barbara Anselmi. The CD contains a 40-page booklet with color photos, full lyrics, and special essays by Hyde Pierce, Hargrove, and Anselmi.
