Tony n? Tina? takes dinner theater to hilarious levels
So how come ?TnT? is such a hoot?
All the characters are here: The happy couple ? he?s something of a gorilla, she has teased her hair so much it probably has self-esteem issues ? and their party: a pregnant, unmarried maid of honor and a few goombah groomsmen; the bride?s fey brother has brought his sassy boyfriend (though no one will admit they are gay); the bride?s ex who crashes the party; the Bon Jovi-covering wedding singer who makes Adam Sandler look like Pavarotti. Add the lecherous father, the funny bridesmaids, the drunk priest and the sleazy photographer, and you know someone?s gonna start a fight. (If the opera isn?t over until the fat lady sings, the wedding isn?t over until the ex-boyfriend attackes the bride .) Welcome to the party!

Much of the evening proceeds as you?d expert: Cheap decor (there?s a cash bar), cheaper family members, a soundtrack of ?80s and ?90s pop hits, ?The Electric Slide,? the tossing of the bouquet. But it?s all so lively, so friendly ? and there?s a weird thrill at being hauled up on the dance floor to do the limbo ? is goes beyond the confines of normal entertainment.

Credit the cast ? mainly local actors, though I won?t name any to maintain the illusion ? who dive Zen-like into their roles. Relish the caterer?s crabby Goth daughter, who never cracks a smile (and slaps a meatball on your dinner plate like she?s trying to hurt you), Tina?s former boyfriend, off the wagon and apt to take his shirt off during ?YMCA;? the groom?s brother, Johnny, who?s one ?How you doin??? away from a bus and truck production of ?Friends.? They?re all great, as are all the actors. If only all work could be this much fun.

?Tony n? Tina?s Wedding,? Weisfeld Center, 1508 Cadiz St. Through March 9. Tuesdays?Saturdays at 7 p.m., weekend matinees at 2 p.m. $65?$85. 214-631-2787. Buy Tickets at www.theatermania.
