The characters have similarities to the Golden Girls. There is sexpot, Blanche type, Monette, who takes many trips down the aisle, the air head Rose type, Libby Ruth who has a perfect marriage and the sarcastic Dorothy type, Deedra whose marriage is threatened when she discovers her husband has a wandering eye and hands. One of the funniest characters is the feminist, hippie character, Charlie who balks at ever getting married until an opportunity presents itself. Throw in Sedalia who owns the establishment and Libby's daughter, Kari, who narrates the show and has many funny monologues. The costumes are very funny especially the French costumes.
All the actresses are hilarious in their roles. Veronica Strickland plays Monette, the sex pot excellently. One of her funniest lines is about wanting two men, one to cook and one to clean. Monette gets married three times and in one scene dresses up like Marie Antoinette. Libby is fantastically played by Christine Reynolds. She sings off key at the start of the show but commands every scene she is in. Christine is hilarious dressed up as a can-can girl who cries hysterically in this scene only to be beaten by pillows to snap her out of it. She keeps things running smoothly. Christine and Veronica have a nice camaraderie with each other. Mandy Solis as Deedra has many sarcastic and biting one liners. Beth Jepson is a hoot as Charlie. Some of her funniest moments come when she puts on a maid's outfit, is dressed like a hippie and when she has her wedding dress on. Beth's funniest scene is when she is dressed like the maid. Judy George plays the owner of the wedding mansion. She wears a funny wig and some of Sedalia's laughs come from when she chases Beth with an axe and delivers hard boiled eggs with anchovy mayo to sober up the girls after a night of drinking. Anna Convery delivers a wonderful performance as this young girl who is about to get married herself. Her monologues hit pay dirt, winning her many laughs along the way. So for a look at a brand new comedy that will definitely tickle your funny bone, be sure to catch "Always a Bridesmaid" by Renaissance City Theatre in Westerly.
