You & Me Productions presents for it’s 3rd Holiday season a holiday gift wrapped in love and laughter: Buon Natale! Christmas Eve Italian Style, a two-act comedy written & directed by Rita Andriello.
Luigi Smaldino of L’Italo Americano Newspaper said: BUON NATALE! “…A Must See!”
“If you have a big ethnic dysfunctional family — think MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING — you will love this show…this is a feel good play for everyone to enjoy.”
Don Grigware, www.reviewplays.com
“With a nod to Nia Vardalos, writer-director Rita Andriello’s formulaic feel-good confection aspires to be a big fat Italian family comedy.”
What do you get when you put together a traditional Italian father, his gay son, an estranged daughter, a Jewish sister-in-law, an undisclosed marriage, and a seven course fish dinner? Buon Natale!Christmas Eve Italian Style, the story of Patriarch, Giuseppe Bongiovanni’s not so traditional Christmas Eve celebration. Yes, when this Italian-American family gathers and chaos ensues. Will Giuseppe’s heart survive? The answer lies amidst laughter and tears and forgiveness in this poignant Christmas Eve Story written by Rita Andriello of Tomatoes on a Windowsill.
Performances begin: December 1, 2023
