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 Elizabeth Rodriguez co-star with Palminteri in this production directed by David Fofi. Learn More

I saw this in previews and it was too long by 45 minutes to an hour. The night I went it was 2 1/2 hours long, without intermission. In fact, it was apparent the performer ran out steam as the first half was rather physical with her running all over the stage. I understand completely the need for preview performances, but I was disappointed the actress had to stop so frequently to check her notes to see what the next line was. It was her play, after all. That, too, was a clue the play ran way too long. The play is a biography of the performer's life expressed through the paintings she makes on stage. (Personally, I always find it ingratiating to hear a middle-aged actress speak in that annoying squeal of a child.) It's obvious she is no painter. Each finished piece is horrible. This play needs a great deal of work. Perhaps it will get there by the time it officially opens.
