Based on the wildly popular 1998 film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, Theater Cedar Rapids production of the Tony-nominated musical The Wedding Singer garners laughs and feel-good heart tugs in a romantic flashback to the 1980s. The story follows Robbie Hart, whos happily engaged and rocking audiences as the crooner for a wedding band. When his fiancee jilts him at the altar, the performer goes on a hilarious downward bender as he spoils gigs and bums out brides with his newfound disdain for romance. The clouds lift when Robbie falls for a waitress named Julia, spurring him to take another chance on love despite her being engaged to a shallow womanizer. Adapted for the stage by Chad Beguelin and longtime Sandler chum Tim Herlihy, with a score of infectious and funny songs from Matthew Sklar, the musical treats fans of the movie to extra doses of romance and whimsical nostalgia, along with an 80's costume and karaoke party after the Saturday night performance.
Voted Best Theater of 2010 and 2011 in KCRG-TV9's CityVoter poll, the community collective of Theatre Cedar Rapids gathers accolades as it grows. The seeds of the company were planted in 1925, when a tiny troupe of thespians played its heart out to audiences of only 30. The theater now reaches more than 50,000 eastern Iowans with its education programs and full seasons of musicals, comedies, and dramas. Although its Iowa Theater Building home has been recently refurbished with new sound and light systems, the theater maintains the charm of its 1920s vaudeville and movie-house origin with a functioning Rhinestone Barton theater organ, 550-seat capacity, and absence of holographic ushers.
