Woulda, Coulda...

 It Shoulda Been You
hit Broadway in April of 2015,
with David Hyde Pierce directing, 
and Tyne Daly, Chip Zien, Harriet Harris, and Edward Hibbert
goosing up what most critics agreed was sit-com material.
Hyde Pierce got full marks, however, for snappy direction.

 Lisa Howard (who we'll hear singing "I Never Wanted This")
played the bride's sister,
and Edward Hibbert 
(standing, center...he played the director in Curtains, btw)
as the wedding planner.
A nice twist at the end brought the whole show
into the 21st Century, but I ain't gonna spoil it for you. 
Josh Grisetti as the ex-boyfriend
was a show highlight, according to the powers that be.
Music, Barbara Anselmi, Lyrics and Book, Brian Hargrove.
Forget ordering closed in August!
