The Arctic Playhouse, 117 Washington Street, West Warwick, RI announces 3 weeks of performances of Any Friend of Percy D’Angelino is a Friend of Mine, written by Jason Milligan.
Originally presented in Los Angeles with Peter Falk, Christian Slater and Jean Smart, this side-splitting Mafia comedy begins with a mysterious stranger arriving at the Long Island estate owned by a renowned mob boss. Why is “Tony” there? To kill the venerable Frankie? To work for him? The mobster’s bombshell wife has her own theories. Hilarious antics designed to divine Tony’s purpose end with the discovery that he is a soap opera star signed to play Frankie in a feature film! Frankie detests movies and determines to have his guest fitted for cement shoes, but he warms to the idea of being glorified in a Hollywood epic. Laughs abound as he coaches Tony on how to play him.
The show is directed by Fred Davison who is joined by cast members (in alphabetical order) Mindy Britto (Sharon), Mark E. Lima (Frankie), Mike Petrarca (Mike). Vicki Yates joins as Stage Manager.
The show will run at The Arctic Playhouse, 117 Washington Street, West Warwick, RI, from Thursday, January 30th – February 16th, 2020. Thursday, Friday & Saturday night performances at 7:30 pm; Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm.
