Veronica is a world premiere one-act play written by John Patrick Shanley, with music and two original songs by Henry Krieger. Veronica De Lisa is an actress from Rome, Italy currently living in New York City. She winds up in the Empire State Building office of high powered attorney Doug Palermo. Following her up to the Observation Deck, he asks Veronica out for dinner. This utterly romantic comedy is a charming and delightful look at a first date and all its implications. The current workshop of the play produced by Aporia Production in association with The Coast Playhouse represents the next step in the process of its development with hopes of a full production in the future.
