After 16 years, Tony and Tina calling it quits?

Soon, the bride will throw what could be her final jaw-busting punch. The penny-pinching caterer will funnel the last few drops of champagne back into a bottle. Full Story

Ugh! Cultural institution? Double Ugh!

If Tony & Tina's Wedding is a cultural institution, John Wayne Gacy was innocent.

I was forced to go to this horrid piece of crap for a work event. I don't know why people would willingly pay money to see this. And the food is bad, too. Blech. Be lucky if you are not one of the "million" who have seen this.

Change it to Tony & Tina's Quickie Divorce. After 16 years they deserve it.

Look, I probably wouldn't like it. But lots of people do. We are not the masters of the revels. If people enjoy it, and they go out for a night of theatre, good. Maybe they'll come back and see something else.

I'd hardly qualify Tony and Tina's Wedding as "theatre"

I always intended to go...just never got around to it. I think they'll do best if they take a hiatus, and re-stage it for "limited performances".

I hear it is being replaced by Tony and Tony's wedding.

It's closing for three months and coming back in November. They're merely closing it temporarily so they can come back and hire new talent for less money. This is the only way to get out of the current contracts with talent. The producers are, alas, weasels.

I blame Obamanomics and the rise in socialism.

I saw this uh...ahem..."production " in Dec 2003 when I went with my friend to her Office Holiday Party. My God was this show bad; I mean seriously bad. I got this "senior citizen takes free chartered bus to smoked-filled casino" vibe when the production started and it just got worse from there. I vividly remember being what I can best describe as angry at times as it was so bad/corny and the schtick was so heavy, you could not breath at times it was that bad.
I am sorry if anyone loses their jobs and such, but only cause we're in such a bad economy now. Almost 6 years later I still recoil when I hear anyone mention Tony & Tina's Wedding or read about it, etc. I feel a part of my innocence was taken away when I saw this piece of garbage....

Didn't they manage to get Frankie Avalon to play Tina's godfather for a few performances?
And it wasn't so bad, when you consider what you pay for a gift to attend a "real" cr*p wedding and eat inferior mostacciolli.

I didn't go and see Toy and Tina's wedding because I've been to enough of real Tony and Tina's weddings to last a lifetime.

Is it campy? Yes. Cheesy? You bet. But I do know that many Italians (particularly from the East Coast) find it a riot because it personifies a lot of the stereotypes and even the real personalities of Italian families, culture and the way a few (cheesy) weddings went down. When I took my Mom to see it, she loved it...because of the music. It really took her back. It's all what you make of it, I guess.

This was the worst piece of junk I've ever attended in my life. We took our two adolescents years ago and even they thought it was junk. May it disappear for ever.

Thanks to Tony and Tina's for your many years if entetaining(???) Eventually it had to come to an end. Honestly i have been surprised that people continue to come. Apparently they have slowed down. Looking forwrd to see what else can be done and will be done in that space.

The Tomaska brothers are the biggest hacks in the business. Legends in their own minds. Cheap, self-important, loud, abusive. Good riddance to this "production".

I had the opportunity to see this three times. It is what it is..an interactive comedy. I had a good time at all of the shows because I didn't take it seriously. I hope they are able to bring Tony & Tina's Wedding back.
