I recently was in an intimate theater watching a wonderful off-Broadway production in New York City. Wait a minute…Actually, I was sitting in a great seat at The Studio Theatre at Tierra Del Sol in The Villages watching the fantastic musical, “It Shoulda Been You.”
With its steller cast and dynamic music, the play is one you really don’t want to miss. Not only is it clever and funny, it has more twists than Agatha Christie making lemonade.
Think about this: a Jewish girl marrying a Catholic boy except for the interference of their mothers, their fathers, and the bride’s former boyfriend. The family dynamics alone are enough to make you bust a button laughing!
The story centers around Jenny
It’s difficult to mention everyone, but this is truly a great cast. Each actor is perfectly in tune with his or her character. Their singing was wonderful, the musicians, under the direction of Gary Powell, were incredible, and the tap dancing was sublime.
If it sounds like I’m raving, that’s because I am. Though the play might be considered long, you’ll want to stay in your seat and hear more when it ends.
Here’s bit of trivia that might interest you. The original production on Broadway was directed by the impeccable David Hyde Pierce.
Led by Producer Jason Goedken and Artistic Director Whitney Morse, The Studio Theatre has become a place of pure entertainment. Whether it’s comedy, drama, or this delightful musical, you know you’ll enjoy it when you take your seat and the lights go down.
