It's time for my review of It Shoulda Been You.
Now I really didn't realise how good this was going to be. I was really excited to see this as it starred David Burtka and I was not disappointed. It was utterly hilarious, every single line said by Edward Hibbert made me laugh. The actors engaged so well with each other. For me every single cast member stood out so I will mention everyone: Tyne Daly as Judy Steinberg, Harriet Harris as Georgette Howard, Lisa Howard as Jenny Steinberg, Sierra Boggess as Rebecca Steinberg, David Burtka as Brian Howard, Montego Glover as Annie Shepard, Chip Zien as Murray Steinberg, Josh Grisetti as Marty Kaufman, Adam Heller as Uncle Morty and Walt, Michael X. Martin as George Howard, Anne L. Nathan as Aunt Sheila and Mimsy, Nick Spangler as Greg Madison and finally Edward Hibbert as Albert. The cast really made the audience feel like they were actually there at the wedding venue. I thought it was an interesting storyline where the bride and groom had completely different families from very different cultural backgrounds and it was funny to see them clash. The actors really made the show enjoyable. It's great that it only takes 13 actors to make a show so entertaining. The songs were also really good and I can't wait for the the soundtrack to come out. The whole cast were great singers. The only thing that I can criticise this show on is that there was no interval. The chairs got rather uncomfortable after an hour and 45 minutes. I feel they could have just had a 15 minute interval half-way through. Apart from that this show was really very good and another recommendation of mine.
The featured star of It Shoulda Been You is… LISA HOWARD!
Lisa had a very powerful voice that captivated the audience's hearts. She made the audience laugh and cry, she was phenomenal!
My final verdict on It Shoulda Been You is, drum roll please…
This was a truly great show and I really advise people to go and see it.
