Comedy duo and married couple Joe Bologna and Rene Taylor hosted a shindig in honor of their upcoming Broadway gig, If You Ever Leave Me...I’m Going With You! July 10 at Patsy's. The comedy begins performances at the Cort Theatre July 17.
If You Ever Leave Me...I’m Going With You! covers the couple's romantic courtship, their first wedding reception on the Merv Griffin Show, their five marriage ceremonies, and the "near spouse-icides of the three decades of professional collaboration" (the latter phrase courtesy of a spokesperson at the Canon). The show, which employs film clips and stills to augment the live performances, also includes scenes from the couple's last duet, the Off Broadway hit, Bermuda Avenue Triangle, as well as It Had to Be You and their best-known pairing, Lovers and Other Strangers.
