JUDGING by the sell-out crowd and the standing ovation, audiences at C Venues are going wild for Music Show Wedding.

* * * * *

C Venues

And, with its perky, upbeat ‘non-verbal’ comic shenanigans it’s easy to see why.

A blend of K-pop (think Gangnam Style energy teamed with Western classics), comedy and theatre, the action centres on the nuptials of two young lovebirds and the disapproving Father of the Bride.

The production seems to be that mythical catch-all show, a family friendly, genuinely innocent, light-hearted night of fun, which would also be an ideal starting point for people looking for a night on the town.

With pop tributes to everyone from Justin Timberlake to the Dixie Cups, the show draws from a broad range of sources.

The cast also man the instruments, the two bridesmaids, Mihye Min and Mink Young Jung, showing a stunning repertoire - including a xylophone flight of the bumble bee and a sensational Over the Rainbow on wine glasses.

Not to be outdone, Groom Young Chul Kim and Father of the Bride Min Jae Lee, get the chance to display their considerable vocal range in a daring sing-off. Bride Jinju Ha manages to steal the show, however, with her bad-girl attitude and squeaky Carpenters take-off.

Run ends 26 August
