Stages Presents Denise Fennell’s The Bride, Or: Does This Dress Make Me Look Married?
(March 10 – May 14, 2023)
Written by Denise Fennell and Rick Pasqualone, Directed by Kenn McLaughlin
Join Stages for the world premiere of Denise Fennell's The Bride, Or: Does This Dress Make Me Look Married?, a raucous comedy from the minds of Denise Fennell and Rick Pasqualone. Stages fan favorite Denise Fennell, known for her role as Sister in the Late Nite Catechism series, returns for an all-new comedy showcase that's part truth, part fiction, and totally hysterical. With less than two hours until her wedding, a bride of a certain age begins to question the meaning of love, life, and the ritual of marriage. Drawing inspiration from Fennell's own life (and marriage to co-writer Rick Pasqualone), The Bride will have you howling with laughter and touch your heart, as you help the bride discover the true meaning of the words I Do.
