15 Aug

Here comes the bride, all dressed in white, here comes the bridesmaids making their way down to the Rockwell Table & Stage! One movie that has become a classic and is a film that we all can watch over and over again definitely has to be Bridesmaids. What’s not to love about this exceptional film?! It has an all-star, phenomenal cast consisting of fan-favorite, profound actresses and actors. It has a spectacular storyline and it makes us all remember the excitement of our very special wedding… or maybe it makes us all remember being super, duper single. Needless to say, Bridesmaids is one iconic movie with so many unforgettable memories, so when we found out that the all new show from Kate Pazakis’ “Unauthorized Musical Parody Of” series is UMPO: Bridesmaids, we couldn’t contain our excitement, and we definitely grabbed our bouquets and got ready to head on over to the Rockwell Table & Stage to watch this brilliant show.

It goes without saying that any show that writer / producer, Kate Pazakis is behind is truly a masterpiece and UMPO: Bridesmaids is Kate Pazakis’ best one yet. Then again, every show that Kate Pazakis works on turns to gold. UMPO: Bridesmaids is filled with so many hilarious moments and it’s a very enjoyable show that takes us along on Annie and the bridesmaids’ journey to make Lillian’s wedding absolutely phenomenal. UMPO: Bridesmaids will make you have a smile from start to finish and it’s one remarkable show you won’t be able to stop talking about. UMPO: Bridesmaids captures the movie so well but it also adds its own special twist with exceptional covers of hit songs and amazing parodies all intertwined in one, sensational show. From songs such as “True” by Spandau Ballet to Taylor Swift’s hit song “Bad Blood,” you’ll be jamming out nonstop while watching UMPO: Bridesmaids.

Of course, the exceptional show couldn’t have been made possible without the marvelous and immensely talented cast consisting of Natalie Lander, Desi Dennis-Dylan, Ashley Argota, Nohely Quiroz, Aynsley Bubbico, Molly Stilliens, Nathan Moore, Heir Kirkegaard, and Michael Thomas Grant.

In addition, Tony award winning actress, Marissa Jaret Winokur added her magic onto this production by directing the show. Marissa Jaret Winokur talked exclusively with Alexisjoyvipaccess at the press opening night of UMPO: Bridesmaids and talked about what it was like for her to have directed the show. Marissa Jaret Winokur said, “It’s been amazing! I actually have always wanted to direct and musical theater is clearly what I want to direct. It’s been really great. The cast is amazing. We’ve put together a lot of new faces, a lot of new voices at the Rockwell and a couple of ones that have been here before. I’ve never put my heart and soul into something so much. When I perform, I get nervous for myself, but now I’m nervous for all eight cast-members, I’m like, “I hope they nail it!”

The wonderful Marissa Jaret Winokur also revealed to Alexisjoyvipaccess what the biggest difference is between acting and directing and said, “Well, as an actress, I’m literally just worrying about myself, but as a director, I have to plan out the whole picture, the whole thing, and also not just worrying about my own beats and my own jokes, it’s like trying to ring in the actors and actresses and being like, “This is what’s written. This is the joke. If you step on the line here, you’re messing up this beat.” Just trying to keep everyone focused, I come in with a very clear plan, rather than my way of an actress I’m like, “Oh, let’s just play. Let’s have fun!” but as a director, I’m like, there’s a lot more homework.”

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had an excellent time covering and attending the sensational, press opening night of UMPO: Bridesmaids and I can definitely say that this is one extraordinary show that you don’t want to miss. Check out some pictures and a video below from the outstanding UMPO: Bridesmaids show and be sure to get your tickets to see the Unauthorized Musical Parody Of Bridesmaids at the Rockwell Table & Stage from August 11th through September 17th.
