I Do! I Do! by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt

TACT closes its 18th season a new and reimagined production of the Harvey Schmidt-Tom Jones musical I Do! I Do!, perfectly timed to build upon the cultural consensus highlighted by the recent landmark Supreme Court decision striking down DOMA, the federal law outlawing same-sex marriages. In this produc, directed by Artistic Director Jack Marshall and and TACT Resident Musical Director Tom Fuller, the decades-long marriage of one couple, referred to in the score as “Him” and “Her,” is represented in three forms by four actors. As Marshall explains, “Like The Fourposter, the play that inspired the musical, I Do! I Do! is really about marriage: what it means, what it takes, the challenges, and the compromises. But it is fascinating to see these ancient and traditional moments married couples know well seen through the prism of same-sex marriages, as well as the traditional kind. I think this approach makes I Do! I Do! more entertaining, and also more true to its theme.”
