Hwang Jung-min takes the lead in Wedding Singer
Aw, this is one project I wish I could see in person. (Often I read about theater productions and feel left out by being halfway around the world.)
The always-wonderful film and theater actor Hwang Jung-min (Accidental Couple, Happiness) is taking on the lead role in the musical version of Wedding Singer, which is based on the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore comedy of the same name. The musical was first produced on Broadway in 2006 and is now being adapted for its first time on the Korean stage.
The bright, heartwarming story of the musical is the same as the film, where a man dreams of being a songwriter but spends his days singing for weddings. Hwang Jung-min takes on this lead role, and will alternate performances with musical and film actor Park Gun-hyung, who made a name for himself performing in the musical Saturday Night Fever and more recently acted in Hamlet.
The musical will open on November 24 and run through January 31.
