Oscar nominee Chazz Palminteri is a modern-day James Cagney, the tough guy with a sensitive soul. Now the star of Bullets Over Broadway, The Usual Suspects and A Bronx Tale returns to his roots in the Los Angeles theater scene, where he was first discovered by Robert De Niro. And just like De Niro first supported him decades ago, he is now championing (and starring in) the work of a brilliant, if unknown, playwright: Unorganized Crime by Kenny D'Aquila. In this gripping and savage story, Gino Sicuso, a forgotten brother and son, is banished to Detroit by his father. What transpires between two brothers and a conflicted but loyal woman is sometimes comedic, sometimes tragic, but always unforgettable. D'Aquila and Jamie Sorrentini co-star with Palminteri in this production directed by David Fofi. Learn More

Great production! The two actors on stage sizzle and are something to look forward to. Well acted, well produced, well directed.
In the world premiere play All Your Hard Work, Mary-Ellen reconnects with Jim, a college boyfriend in town on business, and they end up back at her apartment. When Jim asks for a potentially dangerous favor, Mary-Ellen is forced to choose between her old affections and a long-simmering need for revenge.
