About this show

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!, written by Cynthia Silver & Kenny Finkle, and directed by Paul Urcioli. Presented by Pink Lemonade Productions in association with OTT & Audible Productions as part of the New York International Fringe Festival. Having agreed in the summer of 2002 to allow a British documentary crew to film the preparations for her lavish New York City wedding for a Women's Entertainment series entitled Manhattan Brides, Silver was shocked to discover the footage had been sold to FOX and turned into a reality TV show tellingly called Bridezillas. Suddenly an unwitting traveler in the demoralizing landscape of reality television, Silver found herself mocked on TV and pilloried in the press and chat rooms, her hundred-thousand-dollar wedding ridiculed in re-runs and countless promos. Bridezilla Strikes Back! 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.
