STAR-CROSSED lovers Tony and Tina have had their first major barney, and the fallout from this mother of all rows means the nuptials of London’s first fully interactive Italian-American wedding will now take place from Saturday, April 22.
The good news is the couple are ‘loved up’ again. Tina’s had her final dress fitting and there are gallons of wine and a ‘family style’ New York feast ready for the very theatrical joining of the Vitale and Nunzio families in the ‘Wedding of the Year’.
Never fear, if you have a ticket for the couple’s original big day, you’ll be contacted by the event’s party planners, so you can save the date and attend their reorganised wedding bash at the ArcelorMittal Orbit, from Saturday, April 22.
Ronnie Burden and Alabama Boatman star as the sometimes-happy couple, alongside a cast of 19, including Ben Ofoedu as Vinnie and Ryan-Mark Parsons as Joey, who mingle and ad-lib with the audience, meaning no two performances will ever be the same.
The show immerses the audience in the chaos of Tony and Tina’s irreverent Italian-American wedding as the couple’s guests. There’s cake cutting and bouquet throwing, plus traditional food, music and lots of dancing. And like any good Italian party there’s plenty of vino for all.
The hilarious production is being launched in the UK by veteran theatre impresario Paul Gregg, the man who brought The Lion King to the Lyceum theatre in London’s West End.
Paul said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the truly fantastic Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding at the ArcelorMittal Orbit from Spring 2023. Join us for a celebration night out that includes a three-course Italian wedding dinner, which is enjoyed whilst the show unfolds all around you!”
The London show also boasts Larry Pellegrini, who directed and wrote the original Broadway version that has played to millions from Germany to Japan, since it debuted 35 years ago.
Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is booking now. Tickets are priced at £95 plus booking fee, including show, three-course dinner and a complimentary glass of bubbly! Previews £50.00 from 22nd April to 8th May.
