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

I could not have enjoyed this play more! It's funny, heart breaking, viscous and heart warming. You could hear a pin drop in the theater for the entire performance - except when they were laughing, very loudly I might add. The play is much, much than just another coming out story. It is about the rocky relationship of an adult father with his aging dad, a husband and wife who discover they're strangers, and a mother and son who are ripped apart by the son's sexuality. It really portrayed the different family values of different generations as well. This play is wonderful and enjoyable for all ages - from teens to senior citizens. And the acting is amazing!!! I could not recommend it more highly.
The show contains strong language and may not be suitable for those under the age of 17.
