Cynthia Silver, the unlikely heroine of FOX TV and WE Network's hit series Bridezillas, blows the lid off of reality television in a hilarious and touching one-woman show, Bridezilla Strikes Back! Co-written by Kenny Finkle, the piece chronicles Silver's naïve foray into the world of not-so-real TV, as well as her struggles with the concept of marriage and the rigors of navigating the mercenary New York bridal industry.
Having agreed in the summer of 2002 to allow a British documentary crew to film the preparations for her lavish New York City wedding, Silver was shocked to discover the film had been sold to FOX and WE and turned into a reality TV show tellingly called Bridezillas. Suddenly an unwitting traveler in a demoralizing landscape, Silver found herself mocked on TV and pilloried in the press and chat rooms, her wedding ridiculed in re-runs and countless promos.
Silver's performance has earned her much critical acclaim as well as the Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show at the 2005 New York International Fringe Festival.
