••• About the Show •••
 
“It Shoulda Been You” has all the elements of a classical musical theater comedy: A wedding, two families, mother/daughter issues, father/son issues, an ex-boyfriend, and even a fantastic wedding planner. All of the things that you expect from a musical comedy but with a surprise twist that takes the traditional, turns it upside down, and creates a modern story. At its heart, the show is about love, acceptance and, most of all, the importance of family.
