NEW YORK (AP) - Cast members from Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” are going off-Broadway.

An announcement Tuesday says Teresa Giudice, Ashley Holmes, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Lauren Manzo will join the cast of “My Big Gay Italian Wedding” for four performances Sept. 1-4. The comedy is playing at St. Luke’s Theatre.

A portion of the proceeds from tickets sales and from tickets sold to a post-show party on Sept. 1 will benefit Marriage Equality New York, which works to raise public awareness for equal marital rights.
