by Tasha Gordon-Solmon

in the Bingham Theatre

After Adam and Nicole’s wedding culminates in an awkwardly timed fatality, the reception spins into an increasingly strange evening that leaves the bride and groom questioning just what it is they’re celebrating. But there’s no stopping the festivities: the flower girls are running amuck, the bridal party members are more preoccupied with their own flailing relationships, and everyone needs to stop ordering the blue drinks. Comedies end in marriage. Tragedies end in death. This play begins with both.

The Buzz about I Now Pronounce

“Solmon’s play is a perfect opening salvo for the Humana Festival – ribald, hilarious, immediately identifiable, and played to the hilt by a talented cast.”
– Keith Waits, Arts-Louisville

Full Review from Arts-Louisville

“It’s a contemporary, wedding comedy with a blithe, weightless spirit that evokes the golden age of screwball romances, where loopy beauties, hapless gents, a cynic or two and some charming youngsters scamper from scene to scene sharing drinks, winks and barbed punchlines.”
– Marty Rosen, LEO Weekly
