Tred Avon Players are presenting the Broadway musical It Shoulda Been You, book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove, music by Barbara Anselmi, and directed by Joe Tyler, August 15 through August 25 at the Oxford Community Center.
The charming, funny and original new musical, It Shoulda Been You invites you to a wedding day that you’ll never forget, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places. The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And, when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride!” It’s up to the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after in this musical comedy for anyone who ever had parents.
