About This Show

WORK OF ART PRODUCTIONS, LLC presents Roberto Ragone's The Purgatory Trial of Vito Marcantonio, directed by Art Bernal. Roberto Ragone combines his political and philanthropic careers with his passion of the arts with The Purgatory Trial of Vito Marcantonio – a one-person fantasy. In this “Defending Your Life” scenario, Vito Marcantonio – a real-life congressman that represented East Harlem throughout the 1940's – is temporarily released from purgatory to appear before a modern-day audience to prove that he is worthy to be acquitted of spending eternity in limbo. Ragone, adept in improvisational, sketch, satirical, musical, rant, and mockumentary comedies, embodies all the characters depicted in The Purgatory Trial of Vito Marcantonio, including FDR and his own grandmother.
