Before the advent of the '90s and grunge music's propensity for distorted guitars, the music of the 1980s led a healthy existence filled with colorful synthesized beats and MTV popularity. While revisiting this quirky decade is as easy as listening to the soundtrack of a John Hughes film, few have done as well spoofing this time period's inane musical diversity as the 1998 film, “The Wedding Singer,” starring Adam Sandler. Featuring music by the Buggles, the Police, the Smiths, Billy Idol, New Order, the B-52's, Wham!, Madonna, and Hall and Oates, the movie's song-heavy story about a brokenhearted would-be songwriter has transitioned itself well to a musical stage adaptation. Debuting on Broadway in early 2006, the Tony-nominated "The Wedding Singer" has a three-show engagement at the Landmark Theater beginning Friday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m., and continuing Saturday, Jan. 30, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. $23-$53.
