In It Shoulda Been You, "it’s a culture clash for the ages when two families from wildly different backgrounds come together to celebrate a wedding. As if the union wasn’t complicated enough, the bride’s ex-boyfriend arrives, bringing the wedding to a screeching halt and throwing both families into hysterical chaos. Plots are hatched, promises broken, secrets exposed – and the bride’s resourceful sister is left to turn an unmitigated disaster into happily ever after."

The creative team features choreography by Josh Rhodes, scenic design by Anna Louiza, costumes by William Ivey Long, lighting by Ken Billington and sound design by Nevin Steinberg. Additional lyrics are by Jill Abramovitz, Carla Rose Fisher, Michael Cooper, Ernie Lijoi and Will Randall.

It Shoulda Been You is produced on Broadway by Daryl Roth, Scott Landis, Jane Bergère, Jayne Baron Sherman and John O'Boyle.

The musical had its world premiere at the George Street Musical in Brunswick, New Jersey, where it played from 4 October to 6 November 2011.
