Imagine Laurence Olivier was combined with William Shakespeare, resulting in a genius who could act as well as he could write. That's the sort of talented powerhouse that Eduardo De Filippo was, and his impact on the worlds of Italian literature, theater and cinema was immeasurable. Now the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) debuts a fresh translation of one of De Filippo's most beloved comedies, Napoli!
Set during World War II, a feisty and cash-strapped Neapolitan mother starts a lucrative black market business ... only to prosper a little too
much, prompting hard questions about morality and the state of society. A.C.T. favorite Marco Barricelli (Vigil
at A.C.T.) and Stratford Festival star Seana McKenna (Phèdre
at A.C.T.) return to lead the cast of this wildly entertaining comedy that's as dark and robust as a double shot of espresso.
