A new musical based on the classic romance, "Cyrano De Bergerac," Serrano opens at Little Italy's San Gennaro Festival where two mob families fight for power and territory. Serrano, self-taught, well-read, a lover of the arts and (secretly) the fair Rosanna, is the enforcer for the Reyo Crime family. Don Reyo depends on Serrano and treats him like a son, especially since his real son, Nicky, "came out" and became proprietor and lead singer/dancer at "Queens on Mulberry." Don Reyo orders Serrano to make a gentleman out of the Don's nephew - Vinnie Pepperini - a handsome but foul-mouthed lothario who'd have sex with anything that moves. The goal is to have Vinnie seduce a beautiful and educated young woman, thereby compromising her father, a judge who sits on a case involving "the family." As the winds of war stir around them, Serrano accepts the challenge only to discover that the beautiful young woman Vinnie has to seduce is Rosanna, Serrano's secret love.
