Always the Bridesmaid
He's here, he's queer... now what?
A sold-out hit at the 2014 GayFest, "Always the Bridesmaid" returns for two encore performances with all new material that takes on marriage, equality and the next best thing.

In an 80-minute solo play that is by-turns side-splitting and searing, stand-up dramedian R. Eric Thomas (The Moth, RISK!) constructs a romcom for a new age, stopping along the way to tell hilarious tales of dating disasters, crises of faith and massive consumption of wedding cake.

"At just under an hour and a half, Always The Bridesmaid accomplished a combination of depth and entertainment that many performers strive for their entire careers." -- Edge on the Net

"But what could have been flip, cutesy and corny was anything but. It's a show that preaches the power of  recalibrating expectations of ourselves and admits that, like Carrie Bradshaw's assistant Louise (Jennifer Hudson) says in the Sex and the City movie, he's here for everything that L-O-V-E promises." --Bill Chenevert, Philadelphia Weekly
