"Black Tie is a recent Off-Broadway hit comedy set in a Lake George Hotel on the eve of a family wedding. Mr. Christopher plays the father of the groom, who simply wants to make a memorable toast. But before he is able to raise his glass, he must defend time-honored traditions of the past, including his formal attire. Cultures and generations clash when a surprise guest is announced, threatening to throw convention out the window. Balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for a black tie affair." (Source: Broadway World.)
