Father of the Bride began 59 years ago as a novel then in 1950 Spencer Tracy and Liz Taylor starred in the film; from there CBS aired it as a TV series from 1961 to ’62; then it returned to the screen with Steve Martin in ’91 and finally Caroline Francke adapted it to the stage. It seems the story of Father of the Bride has been told in every median except radio. For anyone that has been involved in or put together a wedding it’s no surprise why audiences continue to enjoy this timeless tale. In this stage version director David Chorley has incorporated video footage and a wedding singer to bridge many of the scenes. Since the story’s inception wedding videos and singing DJ’s have become common faire
The story still remains the same with the befuddled father, George Banks, having a hard time letting go of his only daughter, Annie, when she unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. Suddenly the Bank’s family finds themselves consumed with Annie’s wedding, which they plan to hold at their own home. George finds himself sinking into a financial hole, particularly with the elaborate arrangements planned by their European wedding consultant, Franck.
