“We’re both really, really excited,” said Harter. “We’re very adventurous people, always looking for new things to do. After seeing a performance of It Shoulda Been You, with it’s theme of taking chances in life, we knew this would be an amazing opportunity.” Reuck added, “I’ve dreamed of being married on a Broadway stage since I was 17. I can’t believe it’s actually happening!”

In the hilarious and heartwarming new musical It Shoulda Been You, it’s a culture clash for the ages when two families from wildly different backgrounds come together to celebrate a wedding. As if the union wasn’t complicated enough, the bride’s ex-boyfriend arrives, bringing the wedding to a screeching halt and throwing both families into hysterical chaos. Plots are hatched, promises broken, secrets exposed – and the bride’s resourceful sister is left to turn an unmitigated disaster into happily ever after. It Shoulda Been You puts a refreshingly modern spin on the traditional wedding comedy, proving that when it comes to wedding day insanity, it’s all relative.
