Book and Lyrics by Brian Hargrove  
Music by Barbara Anselmi

Additional Lyrics by Michael Cooper, Will Randall,

Carla Rose Fisher, Ernie Lijoi, and Jill Abramovitz 

A world where nothing is what it seems, religions collide, 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. The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And, when the bride's ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle "Here Comes the Bride!"  It's up to the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after in this musical comedy for anyone who ever had parents.
