Coming in Spring 2019!
The action occurs in an Italian restaurant owned by a successful mobster and managed by his beautiful unmarried daughter. When the daughter's former college professor arrives to ask for financial backing for a play he's written about a murder, the fun begins. The three main Mafiosi are intrigued with the idea of producing a play. The daughter becomes enamored of the playwright, who is delighted to have the family's support. His bubble is burst when he discovers, through the "accidental" death by train of a lesser thug, that his backers are gangsters. In this madcap situation, murder and menace are served up with plenty of pasta and laughter. The worlds of the Mafia and the theater clash hilariously! "There is a buoyant joy to be had in the comic confrontation between two of the wackiest gangster chieftains ever to wack…" —NY Post. "There are funny lines throughout." —NY Daily News. "BREAKING LEGS is a crowd pleaser that should provide an additional layer of enjoyment for people in and of the theater. It is what comedies on Broadway used to be like not that many years ago. Welcome back." —BackStage.
