This play was written by Anthony J. Wilkinson, and is about “Anthony Pinnunziato, a gay Italian-American, wants to marry his boyfriend, Andrew Polinski, in a traditional Italian ceremony. Anthony’s overbearing mother, Angela, won’t give her blessing unless Andrew’s estranged mother also gives her blessing and the ceremony is performed by a priest. Matters are further complicated by Andrew’s ex-boyfriend intent on breaking up the couple.

“My Big Gay Italian Wedding” satirizes the controversy surrounding same-sex marriage while drawing on larger than life gay and Italian characters.” (https://www.silive.com/entertainment/2019/06/off-broadways-my-big-gay-italian-wedding-turns-16-staten-islanders-join-the-cast-this-weekend.html
