When an only daughter gets married, it's a romantic affair, a family affair...
A couple must decide whether to spend their life savings on the family taxicab business or to celebrate their only daughter’s marriage with a lavish catered affair, providing her with the joyful wedding they never had for themselves. This bittersweet reflection on the complexities of relationships between husbands and wives and parents and children will break your heart and make you laugh in one shared moment. Based on the beloved Bette Davis film and featuring a melodious, 50s inspired score, A Catered Affair is a beautiful exploration of the resilience of love.
Led by the award-winning team of director Nick Bowling and music director Doug Peck, this Chicago Premiere production stars Chicago stage veterans Rebecca Finnegan and Craig Spidle. Porchlight Music Theatre is raising funds for enhanced orchestrations to support this production's musical vision, which includes an onstage string quartet, bass, reed and piano players.
