Italian-American Reconciliation by John Patrick Shanley

First Avenue Playhouse presents - Italian-American Reconciliation by John Patrick Shanley: Huey Maximilian Bonfigliano has a problem: While he is safely divorced from his shrewish first wife, Janice, who shot his dog and even took a bead on him, he feels he cannot regain his "manhood" until he woos and wins her one more time-if only to put his broken marriage behind him once and for all. He enlists the aid of his lifelong buddy, Aldo Scalicki, a confirmed bachelor who tries, without apparent success, to convince Huey that he would be better off sticking with his new lady friend, Teresa, a usually placid young waitress whose indignation flares when she learns what Huey is up to. In a moonlit balcony scene (hilariously reminiscent of Cyrano de Bergerac) Aldo pleads his lovesick friend's case and, to his astonishment, Janice capitulates-although not for long. However we do learn that her earlier abuse of Huey was intended to make him "act like a man" which, at last, he does. And, more than that, he (and the audience) become aware that, in the final essence, "the greatest-and only-success is to be able to love"-a truth which emerges delightfully from the heartwarming, wonderfully antic and always imaginatively conceived action of the play. With: Joe Zedeny, Vince Fay, BonnieJo Palmer, Patty Champon and Kathy Janovic Directed by Dave McGrath Please call the theater for tickets, (732) 291-7552
