PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

What happens when a man wakes up in the bridal suite
on his wedding morning to find an extremely attractive
naked girl in bed beside him? As his bride to be
arrives to dress for the wedding, and the best man,
persuaded to claim the naked stranger, introduces the
chamber maid instead as his date, the situation
escalates to riotous farce by the time the mother of
the bride and the best man's actual girlfriend arrive.

A Perfect Comedy
by Ernest

5.0
I saw the Saturday evening performance of Perfect Wedding and found it thoroughly enjoyable. Bobby Labartino as Bill, who wakes up with a naked girl in his bed, has excellent comic facial expressions and the audience really enjoyed his performance. Erin Greenway as Judy, the naked girl in the bed, was excellent as well. I wouldn't mind waking up next to her either.

Piotr Stapor made a good foil as the put-upon best-man, forced to lie to try and keep his buddy's indiscretions a secret. Amber Chaney was very believable as the bitchy bride to be. At one point, I thought her eyes were going to pop out of her head as she screamed.

With all these good performances, LeAnna Lambert stole the show as the frank talking chamber maid, caught in the middle. Her Jersey girl accent sometimes morphed into a cockney one, but it never failed to get a laugh at the right time.

Kudos to Robert Egizio for direction as much of the dialogue flew fast and furious, and the whole cast was obviously well rehearsed. The set was good, however the walls had a tendency to shake when the doors were slammed shut, as they often were. The costumes were excellent, especially Erin in the wedding dress. However, I was surprised when LeAnna stripped off her maids uniform and was dressed as if she were ready to go to a bar instead of clean hotel rooms. A minor problem.

The whole production was fast paced and up-beat. Not a show for kids but all of the adults in the audience sure enjoyed the show. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
