About The Show:

A world where nothing is what it seems, religions collide, Machiavellian plots are revealed, promises are broken, secrets are exposed and hope springs from the most unlikely of places… Is it the latest conflict in the Middle East? No, it’s just the Steinberg wedding. The charming, funny and original new musical, It Shoulda Been You, invites you to a wedding day that you’ll never forget, where anything that can go wrong does and love pops up in mysterious places.
