About the show

A dark comedy about two bungling mobsters who fall out of favor with "la famiglia." If the mob ever had an odd couple...this one's it. More…

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.

See it if You don't mind seeing a play that is funny and silly. You don't mind seeing a play about mobsters with a "twist". You want to laugh.

See it if you don't mind stereotypical portrayals of Italians and Cross dressers used for comedic effect. Just entertainment without a message.

Also Moolah was fun. Just entertainment of the empty vacuous sort, where yo... Read more Read less

Confusing, Dizzying, Great acting

See it if You want to see a two man play that addresses issues of Mafia strongmen in a gay subtext.

Don't see it if You want a well delivered script with a more satisfying climax. While there were some funny moments, play lacked focus despite good actors.

Don't see it if If you find it exhausting "getting" the jokes but not finding them funny.

Banal, Cliched, Ambitious, Raunchy

See it if you like 70's music. The music they played before the show and during the 10 min intermission was great! Good acting; writing not so much.

Don't see it if you're the tiniest bit tired...you will definitely nod OFF, even though this is a very LOUD show.

Also Show started off ok, although some of the acting was over-exaggerated.... Read more Read less

Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Raunchy

See it if you're in love with mobster types and want to support off off Broadway plays.

Don't see it if you value your time. It was billed as a comedy but there were no laughs. Sorry but had to leave a intermission.

"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...
