The open-ended run will officially open May 22. Additional casting will be announced at a later time. "Planning a wedding can be hell… or a hell of a lot of fun!," according to press notes. "Two handsome grooms, one overbearing Italian mother, a jealous ex-boyfriend, the wedding planner from Hell, and an assortment of kooky family and friends all gather together for Off-Broadway’s newest laugh-out-loud comedy with a heart."
