WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti. Intending to settle her latest husband's affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry's impossible Croatian mother, a dash of current politics, and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion.

This feisty romantic comedy could only come from John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Doubt, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck. The production features Tony winner Jason Alexander, who starred in the iconic television series Seinfeld, for which he received six Emmy Award nominations. Alexander made his Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along and won a Tony for Jerome Robbins' Broadway. His film credits include Pretty Woman, Love! Valour! Compassion!, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
