Last Minute Tuesday: The Wedding Singer

By Jonathan McNamara

Adam Sandler did not appear in the original 2006 musical version of The Wedding Singer. Stephen Lynch did. What better replacement? The producers swapped one comedic song-writing star for another.

Neither Lynch nor Sandler will be appearing in tonight's opening show for The Wedding Singer at Gammage Auditorium. I don't know about you, but I find that a bit relieving. I mean I laughed the first time I heard Sandler's Hanukkah song and I nearly wet myself (with guilt) the first time I heard Lynch's "Special Fred," but with those two out of the mix there's a chance that the lead might actually be someone who can sing.

See for yourself tonight at Gammage Auditorium at 7:30p.m. For more on The Wedding Singer see Hail Marry by Robrt Pela.
