Broadway and TV stars Sierra Boggess and Harriet Harris will perform songs from It Shoulda Been You, the eagerly anticipated musical that will be David Hyde Pierce’s debut as a director on Broadway

Written by Brian Hargrove and Barbara Anselmi, It Shoulda Been You is billed as “a musical comedy for anyone with parents.” The plot summary is in the best tradition of musical farce: The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature, his mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And when the bride’s ex-boyfriend shows up, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle ‘Here Comes the Bride!’ Plots are hatched, pacts are made, secrets exposed – and the sister of the bride is left to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after!
