My Big Gay Italian Wedding is a play written by Anthony J. Wilkinson that includes original music and lyrics written by David Boyd.
Anthony’s original production of My Big Gay Italian Wedding started his other passion in the theatre world, when it opened Off-Broadway in 2003 at the Actor’s Playhouse and later moved to Theatre Four in the spring of 2004. In 2006, Anthony wrote and starred as “Rio La Rocca” in the Off-Broadway production of Boys Just Wanna Have Fun. Anthony restaged My Big Gay Italian Wedding in September of 2009 at the St. George Theatre for an audience of almost 2,000 people. After much discussion and huge debates with regards to the topic, its rave reviews and success prompted an explosive revival on Restaurant Row with a full out Equity cast in April of 2010. The run was expected to last six weeks, and extended 14 times in the same location.
During the run, the show hosted some major celebrities in efforts to help raise money and awareness for marriage equality and the Trevor Project. Aside from New York City, the show has already played in multiple cities in the US as well as Edinburgh, London, Vancouver, Hong Kong and parts of France. In June of 2013 Anthony opened the sequel to My Big Gay Italian Wedding, My Big Gay Italian Funeral. The funeral ran for over two years at St. Luke’s Theater in New York City, and has also been licensed in multiple locations by Samuel French
Wilkinson’s final chapter to the trilogy, “My Big Gay Italian Midlife Crisis” opened at the Theater Center Off-Broadway in November of 2015 where it continues to run at the present time. Anthony originated the role of Anthony Pinnunziato, a spin off of his real life persona, and continues to play him on stage presently in New York. My Big Gay Italian Midlife Crisis has also been published and has already been licensed in New Jersey, Kentucky, Atlantic City and Michigan.
My Big Gay Italian Wedding satirizes the controversies surrounding same-sex marriage as well as gay and Italian stereotypes.
The outrageously entertaining Staten Island family from My Big Gay Italian Wedding is back in the hilarious sequel. This stand-alone comedy brings loads of humor to one of life’s saddest events, the death of a loved one. With an incredible ensemble of thirteen comedic actors, this hilarious take on one of life’s worst moments will make you laugh so hard you will cry!
