What is The Wedding Singer about?
The Wedding Singer plot in a nutshell: It's the year 1985. Hair is ginormous, greed is at an all-time high, and wannabe rockstar Robbie Hart is the most coveted wedding singer in New Jersey. When Hart's fiancée says 'I don't' at the altar, he slips into a vengeful depression determined to make every wedding just as awful as his own. But can the kindhearted Julia and her best girlfriend Holly convince Robbie to crawl out of the dumpster and get back into the spotlight? Or will he see her walk the aisle with the Wall Street wolf Glenn?
A history and background of The Wedding Singer film and musical
The original 1998 film was a huge hit and grossed $123.3 million at the box office on a budget of $18 million. It also marked the first of three collaborations between stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, who went on to co-star in 50 First Dates (2004) and Blended (2014). Barrymore has recently reportedly expressed interest in shooting another movie with Sandler, who recently appeared in the made-for-Netlfix film Murder Mystery opposite Jenifer Aniston.
The success of The Wedding Singer (1998) swiftly prompting Broadway producers to adapt a musical, which received its world premiere in Seattle on 16 February 2006 before transferring to New York's Al Hirschfeld Theatre on 27 April of that same year. The Broadway production was nominated for five Tony Awards in 2006, including for Best Musical and Best Original Score, and also enjoyed eight Drama Desk Award nominations.
Now after two UK Tours in 2007 and 2017, the musical is finally set to enjoy a feature run in London at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from January 2020.
