Straight out of the looney bin, Sonny is a hairdresser from Staten Island who moonlights as a mafia hit man. Sonny's older cousin is Ant'ny, a big-talking shyster with small-time bookie racket and a homophobic chip on his shoulder. Together, they spend the evening in a Staten Island salon imparting their frustrations and lethal energies upon one another.
"The perfect combination of everything that puts audience members in seats: the drama of an Italian family out to make a killing, the comedy of two cousins who couldn't be more different, and the excitement of not knowing who is going to live, who is going to die...A great time posing as a little existential drama...The acting really made this play riveting...A dark comedy that will definitely have you laughing, 'Moolah' is a mix of everything that really brings out the drama of a good show."
