What the Rabbi Saw

SYNOPSIS

Slapstick Comedy

7 m, 4 f

Adrienne Barbeau (on the east coast) and Eva Longoria (on the west coast) have headed casts of this crazy slapstick farce which takes pre-wedding jitters to nightmare proportions. In a posh New York hotel just before Walter and Wendy are scheduled to say “I do”, Walter’s zipper becomes attached to his bride’s sister’s dress during a last minute act of infidelity. Meanwhile Wendy is having a fling with the best man. This finely tuned exercise in physical comedy zips from one hilarious situation as all try to hide their exploits and make it to the church on time.

“The most fun I never had at a wedding!” – Los Angeles Times

“Think Ray Cooney and Ken Ludwig combined and revved up!… Bawdy fun!” – Backstage

“Vintage Van Zandt & Milmore: zany madcap antics at a rapid fire pace. Endless pratfalls, door ballets and physical comedy have actors diving under beds and into suitcases, getting hit with silver platters, hiding under wedding gowns, slipping on ice cubes, dodging bullets, falling off buildings, and jumping in and out of closet doors which seem to have minds of their own.” – Asbury Park Press
