The cast of The Wedding Singer

Adam Sandler continues his cultural domination of the world with The Wedding Singer: The Musical. Yes, you read that correctly ­— a musical based on an Adam Sandler movie. (Hey, at least they didn't try to adapt Little Nicky.) The show follows be-mulleted wedding singer Robbie Hart as he's dumped at the altar, falls in love with waitress Julia Sullivan, and attempts to convince her to break up with her Don Johnson-fetishizing fiancé. The original score is heavy on synth pop and the costumes are as horrifying as those in a homage to the 1980s should be. The Wedding Singer has received positive reviews and is apparently as charming and fun as the 1998 hit movie, with the original Broadway cast earning five Tony nominations for their performances. See the traveling show anytime this weekend at Mahaffey Theater. Through Nov. 4, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Thurs., 8 p.m. Fri., 2 and 8 p.m. Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg, $19.80-$70, 727-892-5767, mahaffeytheater.com.
