According to a release, My Big Gay Italian Wedding concerns the obstacles that Anthony and Andrew face while planning their nuptials: "Anthony insists on a big, traditional Italian wedding—but there are a few problems. Anthony's family won't give their blessing unless he can fulfill two requirements: the ceremony is to be performed by a priest, and Andrew's estranged mother in Florida must give her blessing too. To further complicate matters, Andrew's ex-boyfriend is intent on breaking the couple up by revealing a recent indiscretion."

The creative team for Wedding comprises John Kenny (sets), Chris March (costumes), Aaron Copp (lighting) and Joseph Ritsch (choreography).

My Big Gay Italian Wedding plays Fridays at 10 PM and Saturdays at 3 PM. The Actor's Playhouse is located in Manhattan at 100 Seventh Avenue, between Bleecker and Christopher Streets. Tickets, priced at $40, are available by visiting Click here.
