Dinner With the Boys, a new play by Dan Lauria (Lombardi, The Wonder Years), will make its off-Broadway debut at Theatre Row's Acorn Theatre this spring. Performances are set to begin April 21 in advance of a May 4 opening. Frank Megna directs.

The play is described as "a comedy about two wise guys from the old neighborhood who find themselves at odds with the family and must serve up perfectly seasoned results with their puttanesca in order to escape danger themselves. As they await their own fate in 'the wilds of New Jersey,' this Italian odd couple reflects on their days of glory while preparing dinner for special guests, all the while wondering, will this meal be their last supper?"

Lauria will costar alongside Ray Abruzzo (The Sopranos) and Richard Zavaglia (Donnie Brasco).

Dinner With the Boys made its world premiere at the New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch in last fall.

The creative team features scenic design by Jessica Parks, costume design by Patricia E. Doherty, lighting design by Jill Nagle, and sound design by Matt Kraus.
