There are going to be two more weeks of Three Grooms and a Bride at Los Angeles' Coast Playhouse — that's 16 more weddings for the comedy about straight and gay marriages.

Performances of Three Grooms began June 28 and will continue through Aug. 18. Gary Goldstein (Parental Discretion, Just Men) penned the world premiere play, directed by Randy Brenner.

In a casting gimmick for the show, Jean Stapleton, Brooke Shields and Elliott Gould, along with Loni Anderson, Mariette Hartley, Jim J. Bullock, Dan Lauria, Sally Kellerman, Robert Mandan, Paul Mazursky and Renee Taylor, have recorded messages offering congrats, condolences and advice to the three grooms and brides of the title. The comedy looks at a straight wedding and a gay one (hence the overflow of grooms), mocking love, relationships and the art of marriage planning.

Three Grooms and a Bride features Anne Desalvo, Seth Resnik, Michael Otis, Christopher Lamba and Stephanie Venditto.

Tickets are $25. The Coast Playhouse is located at 8325 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. For reservations, call (323) 654-8111. — By Christine Ehren
