The quintessential opera/ musical "cross-over" piece, Don Imbroglio offers a side-splitting musical about opera and family, bimbos and gangsters, love
and pastry, and a requiem for a dead cat. This user-friendly musical farce is The Godfather meets The Marriage of Figaro meets Noises Off.
The FBI and IRS have cracked down on Don Imbroglio's front organization, the non-existent Staten Island Grand Opera -- and if he doesn't produce an opera quickly, his entire family will go to jail! Meanwhile, the Don's collegiate daughter, Angelica, brings her hapless boyfriend home for the first time to attend the wedding of the Don's temperamental son, Dante -- who has his own hands full with his hot-blooded bride, Donna, and broken-hearted ex-girlfriend, Chastity. All the while, the lecherous family consigliere, Lascivo, guns for a piece of the action any way he can get it. After an evening of gun play, word play, poisoned cannoli, whacked cats, and slamming doors, the family gets down to business -- and produces an opera in Italian with sur-titles written by a "friend of the family," who, ahem, doesn't quite speak Italian.
Directed by Jenny Lord, Don Imbroglio is by Peter Hilliard (composer) and Matt Boresi (librettist).
