Gurney has always been a favorite of Jewel Box audiences. In this offering, the father of the groom desperately (and comically) defends the time-honored ways of his past, including his attire. He insists on wearing the black tux of his dead father in spite of his family’s warnings that he’ll be mistaken for a waiter. His much-rehearsed toast is replaced by the stand-up comedy act of the bride’s ex-husband. Cultures clash and Curtis finds that balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for a black tie affair.
