About This Show

Steve Scionti stars in Antipasto! A Sicilian Celebration. This critically acclaimed
one-man show celebrates the Italian-American heritage, and is set against the backdrop of a post-funeral gathering to celebrate the life of Scionti’s grandfather, Angelo Morrello (who owned Angleo’s Shoe Repair on Main Street in Middletown). Taking us through the funerial day’s events, Scionti paints a theatrical family portrait in a series of humorous and poignant vignettes transforming himself into various family members and friends, jumping back and forth through time to affecting moments on his journey into adulthood. Eight characters are portrayed in all, including his grandfather; his father Sebastiano; his mother Rosetta; brother Antonio; uncles Amadeo and Manny; Jerry, the local neighborhood pizza-maker; and Brother Connelly, a teacher from Xavier High School in Middletown.

Running time: 75 minutes, no intermission
