Weddings are chaos with a built-in documentarian. On Rebecca and Brian's wedding day, no photographer could hope to capture everything that goes wrong. Brian's WASPy mother and Rebecca's Jewish mother keep slinging insults, Brian's dad thinks it's not too late to get Rebecca to sign a pre-nup and the bride's sister has called the bride's ex and inadvertently invited him to the wedding. And let's not forget about eavesdroppin' Aunt Sheila and her habit of listening in on private conversations. Barbara Anselmi and Brian Hargrove's musical It Shoulda Been You is a fast-paced and funny trip down the aisle, which is why Stages St. Louis opens its new season with the comedy. It Shoulda Been You is performed at 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday, June 4, at the Robert G. Reim Theatre (111 South Geyer Road, Kirkwood; www.stagesstlouis.org). The show is performed every day except Monday through July 3. Tickets are $20 to $59.
