A Catered Affair

A musical about a young couple getting married and wanting a small wedding and not even inviting the bride’s uncle who lives with the family. That is until the parents intervene and decide to put on a more grander affair for the young couple. It is a very domestic tale without any jeopardy to anything, all gentle and pleasant. Set in East coast America, the accent is convincing. While the singing is competent with Magie Robson as the Bride’s mother stands out. Aimee Gray as the bride-to-be is very watchable as well if a little fragile. The five piece ensemble of piano, string and clarinet elevates the likeable but unmemorable music and give it more depth. Though the perfectly competent production does not rise beyond the limit which the material has to offer.
