Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

The delightful Mary Wiseman plays a quick-witted single woman attending the straight wedding of her former girlfriend in this sprightly if slender new comedy by Bryna Turner, directed by Jenna Worsham for Lincoln Center's LCT3 wing. Structured mostly as a series of bittersweet one-on-one scenes between Wiseman's mop-haired, defensive, increasingly intoxicated Carlo and other wedding attendees—including the beautiful bride (Rebecca S'Manga Frank), her acidic mother (Carolyn McCormick), an awkward would-be fiancé (Will Rogers) and a shamless flirt (Han Van Sciver)—the script crackles with jokes, and it's nice to see the familiar set-up tweaked for a more sexually fluid age. And if the very brief running time doesn't provide much depth in the non-central characters, it keeps the action moving apace. 

At the Wedding. Claire Tow Theater (Off Broadway). By Bryna Turner. Directed by Jenna Worsham. With Mary Wiseman. Running time: 1hr 5mins. No intermission.
