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

It was a very mixed bag between depicting women totally dedicated to their God, religious raptures, and a very stereotypical presentation of the inquisition and its abuses mixed with more modern scenes of sexual abuse by a priest. Apparently a lot of the script was taken from a book Teresa published. It probably would read a whole lot better in the original than this modification for the stage. The best thing about the play was the creative set. Those columns and walkways really captured the architecture of a Spanish convent. G.H.
