“Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” is coming to Doylestown for one week, presented by the Bucks County Center for the Performing Arts at Delaware Valley University in June 2022.
The “Wedding” is one of three shows for the center’s summer season.
This show comes with an Italian dinner catered by Luberto’s. Some people have asked how you can serve a dinner in the Life Sciences Building, the home of the Bucks County Center of the Performing Arts. You can’t. The show will be held in another building at Del Val – a building with a kitchen and there will be dinner served, tables and chairs, not theater seats.
Going to “Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” is like going to a real wedding with a wedding ceremony, dancing to a live band and a great amount of humorous improvisations.
The second show is “A Musical Cooking Lesson with the Calamari Sisters.” Hilarity, failed dishes, and food fights ensue during this live “broadcast” of a public access cable cooking show hosted by two larger-than-life Italian sisters, Delphine and Carmela Calamari. The sisters sing and dance to beloved Italian favorites as they try to make it through their final broadcast together in one piece.
The third show is “Sweet Charity,” a musical with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and book by Neil Simon. It was directed and choreographed for Broadway by Bob Fosse starring his wife and muse Gwen Verdon alongside John McMartin. It is based on the screenplay for the 1957 Italian film “Nights of Cabiria.”
“Sweet Charity” premiered in 1966 and won nine Tony awards including best choreographer. “Sweet Charity” also won the Tony for best revival in 1986.
All three shows will be presented at Delaware Valley University in the summer of 2022. Subscriptions for all three shows are $125 and individual tickets are $59 for all seats. For subscriptions to all three shows and for information call 215-297-8540; for individual tickets call 215-297-8540.
