A CATERED AFFAIR asks the question that inevitably faces every mother and daughter: Whose wedding is it anyway? The musical tells the story of a Bronx mother's efforts to give her only daughter the elaborate wedding she never had—and the bride never asked for. In this funny, poignant and oh, so human show of love and disaffection, Harvey Fierstein's book and John Bucchino's score explore both our need for love and the true meaning of family.
