The story of a marriage is at the center of this intimate and nostalgic work by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones, the authors of “The Fantasticks.” The show begins with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day and traces their life together over a period of 50 years, until the day they leave their house to the next pair of newlyweds. In that time we watch them go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family, negotiate mid-life crises, quarrel, separate, reconcile and grow old together, all lovingly to the strains of a tuneful, charming score which includes the standard "My Cup Runneth Over."
”I Do! I Do!” is as universal as marriage itself, and far easier to mount! In addition to its minimal set and flexible orchestra size (from two pianos to full orchestra), the show boasts the smallest cast ever for a Broadway musical: two larger-than-life star roles, and no one else. “I Do! I Do!” delivers Broadway quality and universal appeal with minimal production requirements.
