About this show

An accelerated, full immersion Italian lesson about Cinema, Sex and Saints... oh, and Federico Fellini too! Dina Morrone's one-woman show, The Italian in Me, follows a doe-eyed aspiring actress a she leaves her overbearing, old fashioned grandmother (Nonna) in Canada and moves to Rome in search of "LA Dolce Vita." She quickly learns that the Eternal City is not as "Holy" or as romantic as she imagined. As she pursues her Roman dream, everyday becomes a sexual obstacle course filled with perverts, priests and pinches, until - when all seems lost - she meets the "Maestro" Federico Fellini at Cinecitta Studios. It's a chance meeting that will forever change her life. "Written and rendered to perfection." -- Dave DePino, Backstage West "Worthy of seeing more than once." -- Metro L.A. (Recommended!)
