Making its US debut, “So She Married a Guido” is a heartwarming and hilarious exploration of cultural differences and the bonds of family. Through a combination of storytelling, photos, and footage, actor/comedian Guido Cocomello (from Being the Ricardos, Ford vs Ferrari, Just for Laughs, and more) takes audiences on a journey through the events that have shaped his life, including meeting and proposing to his wife and overcoming the sudden death of his father.
Originally staged under the name “So I Married a Mangiacake,” the show has received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, with a sold-out national tour of Canada and a US tour in the works. “So I Married a Mangiacake” is a fun and intriguing show, which, without resorting to clichés, uses comedic elements with intelligence and sensitivity as the starting points to tell a deeply personal story that we can all relate to.” – Corriere Canadese
