The father of the groom wants to wear a tux to the rehearsal dinner in A.R. Gurney's new comedy Black Tie, receiving its world premiere at Primary Stages. But for his family, this sweet and sincere gesture is the equivalent of tripping the minister or toppling over the wedding cake.
How could a tuxedo"”more appropriately called "evening clothes," we are informed"”cause such a fuss? It's too stuffy for the bride and the rest of her wedding party, who would rather have everyone wear T-shirts. They also nix the seating chart, alter the menu, and cancel dear old dad's toast, as they would rather listen to a raunchy stand-up comedian who has turned up at the last minute.
