About This Show

Annie Pie’s farce, Wild Mushrooms, is set in the Bronx and revolves around Benny Scrivente, a widowed postal worker and his family, as seen through the eyes of his thirteen year old wise-mouthed son, Joey, a prodigy and new darling of the literary expose set. Benny struggles to raise his two beautiful daughters, Dodie and Regina, trying to get them married off the old-fashioned Italian way, but sensual Regina prefers to play the field, while sweet, simple-minded Dodie is already engaged to Mario Bellohomo, a man of questionable character. Benny’s dream is to open his own trattoria and proud of her father’s cooking Dodie unwittingly invites a few of Mario’s friends over for Sunday dinner. Their guests include literary attorney Eviel Kharren, Mario’s friends, The Don and his co-hort Angelo Pecorino, but clairvoyant Aunt Rose, the bane of Benny’s existence and Joey’s champion, saves the day with her unorthodox choice of hors d’oeuvers.

Dinner reservations begin at 6:30pm.
