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 liked this piece - though admittedly the second act was much better than the first. The story is engaging - acting was fine - and the sets well done. My only comment is that there were too many unneccessary scene changes and an hour and a half for the first act was way too long.

The show could use a little trimming but the detective story aspect is interesting. Performances are generally good with a few standouts, especially Jim Hanna, Ann Ryerson, and Monica Martin. The multiple-casting is occasionally confusing.
The show’s running time is two hours, with an intermission.
