The production also features Bryan Anthony, Tricia Burns, Brett Douglas, Liz Gerecitano, Leah Gerstel, Randi Kaplan, Chad Kessler, Kevin McIntyre, Carla-Marie Mercun, Erik Ransom, Meagan Robar, Joe Scanio, Fabio Taliercio and Adam Zelasko. Teresa A. Cicala directs.

My Big Gay Italian Wedding is described as such: "Planning a wedding can be hell… or a hell of a lot of fun!  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."

The production also features choreography by J. Austin Eyer, scenic design by Rob Santeramo, costume design by Philip Heckman and lighting design by Graham Kindred.

A portion of the proceeds of every ticket sold for Gay Italian Wedding benefits Broadway Impact, the grassroots organization of the theatre community mobilizing in support of marriage equality.
