Teresa Giudice, Ashley Holmes, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Lauren Manzo from the Bravo reality series The Real Housewives of New Jersey will join the Off-Broadway cast of My Big Gay Italian Wedding for four performances, September 1-4. Dina Manzo, one of the stars of seasons one and two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and a producer of My Big Gay Italian Wedding, will make a special introduction before each of these performances.

Teresa A. Cicala has directed the production, which performs at St. Luke's Theatre. The play focuses on two gay men as they plan their wedding and the people around them, including an overbearing Italian mother, a jealous ex-boyfriend, the wedding planner from Hell, and an assortment of family and friends.

The cast currently features Daniel Robinson, Anthony J. Wilkinson, Bryan Anthony, Tricia Burns, Eric Carpenter, Brett Douglas, Liz Gerecitano, Leah Gerstel, Randi Kaplan, Chad Kessler, Kevin McIntyre, Carla-Marie Mercun, Erik Ransom, Meagan Robar, Joe Scanio, and Adam Zelasko.

Following the September 1 performance, there will be a post-show celebration with a limited number of premium tickets for that evening's performance including access to the party. A portion of the proceeds raised from tickets sales to the party and from every ticket sold for the September 1-4 performances will benefit Marriage Equality New York.

My Big Gay Italian Weddingfeatures choreography by J. Austin Eyer, original music and lyrics by David James Boyd, scenic design by Rob Santeramo, costume design by Philip Heckman and lighting design by Graham Kindred.
