The new comedy Angelos is set in a neighborhood barber shop named after its Greek owner. The Angelos shop is situated in a bustling, ethnically diverse city. Its crew and regular patrons evoke a more diverse version of Damon Runyon. There's Angelos the barber, Brocha the Israeli manicurist, Mirror the elderly African American shoe-shine concessionaire, Kelly the Scalp (he sells tickets), Jimmy the Book, Barry the businessman, and Uncle Moe the Shylock. He's a Connected man, if you get the drift.
One fine day, into the shop walks David, a young Chassidic man aged 21, who is working as a delivery boy for the neighboring Jewish deli. Although ostensibly there to deliver groceries, he's actually packing heat and intends to rob the joint and its patrons. He wants to score a lot of money very fast, so he can escape his restrictive life style and pursue Maria, the Gentile object of his affections. Rather than turn him in to pursuing police, the people of Angelos, thinking David is more cute than dangerous, conspire to help him woo the girl of his dreams.
Angelos is preceded by a curtain raiser, Dating Stories. Three very different couples are on simultaneous first dates, which have significantly different conclusions. The subject itself is a ripe target for big laughs.
