The glitz of Sin City meets the razzle-dazzle of Broadway in this insanely funny new musical full of skydiving Elvises, sexy chorus girls, red-hot romance…and really cold feet.

ABOUT THE SHOW
The show tells the story of Jack, a Brooklynite with an extreme fear of marriage, who finally gets up the nerve to ask his girlfriend Betsy to marry him. But when smooth-talking gambler Tommy — looking for a second chance at love — falls head over heels for Betsy, Jack must go to extreme heights to win back the love of his life. A romantic romp from New York to Vegas to Hawaii, Honeymoon is non-stop, laugh-out-loud Broadway fun! Tony Danza (“Who’s the Boss?,” “Taxi”), past Tony Award®-nominee Rob McClure (Chaplin) and Brynn O’Malley (Annie) star in this uproarious new musical about the crazy things we do for love.
While the original film soundtrack consisted mainly of covers of Elvis Presley songs performed by contemporary artists, the Broadway musical boasts a sore by Jason Robert Brown, who won Tony Awards for composing the musicals Parade and The Bridges of Madison County.
The musical’s book is written by Blazing Saddles and Fletch writer Andrew Bergman, who is also credited with the film’s screenplay.
