My wife and I attended a high school production of The Wedding Singer last night. The students did very well, and the costumes brought back memories of the 1980s in all their horrors.
I'd never seen the Adam Sandler - Drew Barrymore movie on which the show was based - though it was one of the early pieces in Sandler's transition from cinematic clown to serious actor in romantic comedies. He's carried it further in movies like 50 First Dates - also with Barrymore. He's following the steps of noted funny men like Tom Hanks, Jim Carrey and Robin Williams, though he's not quite seen as a potential leading man in a drama.
In any event, last night did introduce me to one scene which serves to answer a question that comes up (implicitly, not usually explicitly) at wedding rehearsals. To wit:
The play also included a brief hit of klezmer music, which moves me to include this video for no particular reason.
