Nothing speaks to a person’s heart more than a home cooked meal. Even more so when it’s Italian food. For two people, it becomes a moment to connect and possibly fall in love over pasta courses and a few bottles of wine. In MARRY HARRY, we’re taken to a corner Italian restaurant in New York City to embark on a love story.
Streaming Musicals New York Rom-Com
In just the few opening musical numbers, our scene is set for the two soon to be lovebirds. Sherri is picking out her wedding dress for her upcoming wedding. Harry Jr. (aka Little Harry), worries about telling his dad he doesn’t want to work for him anymore.
Cliches also follow the start of this musical as we’re introduced to their parents. Proud of the family name, Harry Sr. is looking for the next big trend to try and save the family restaurant.
Sherri’s overbearing but loving mother, Francine, has all the arrangements prepped and ready for her daughter's big day.
In traditional rom-com fashion, Harry and Sherri happen to run into each after emotionally stressful days. When Harry offers to cook dinner for Sherri, it’s looking like this could be love at first sight for these two. However, unlike other rom-coms MARRY HARRY might surprise you with a twist ending.
Quick Cuts with a Theatre Feel
For those unfamiliar with Streaming Musicals’ work, their productions aren’t live, but rather filmed in advance. We get theatre magic as sets flip quickly from dress shop, to restaurant, to outside on a New York street. Then it’s combined with movie magic as extra technical effects are added, like a magical sparkle filter. The songs for this particular show will also add a traditional musical feel as most sound like a usual theatrical score.
Clocking in at just over an hour, MARRY HARRY is a quick musical you can watch from the comfort of your couch. It might not be the best fit if you aren’t usually a fan of love stories. However, it would be a good fit for those looking for a nice, quick romantic musical.
