He’s here, he’s queer… now what?
A smash hit at the 2012 GayFest, Always the Bridesmaid returns with all new material that takes on marriage, equality and the next best thing.
In an 80-minute solo play that is by-turns side-splitting and searing, stand-up dramedian R. Eric Thomas (The Moth, RISK!) constructs a romcom for a new age, stopping along the way to tell hilarious tales of dating disasters, crises of faith and massive consumption of wedding cake.
“At just under an hour and a half, Always The Bridesmaid accomplished a combination of depth and entertainment that many performers strive for their entire careers.” — Edge on the Net
Written and performed by R. Eric Thomas
Directed by Jarrod Markman
Dramaturgy by Rebecca Adelsheim
