The show is a Brechtian Cabaret with a live jazz band circa 1918 that “samples” Jimmy Durante’s songs & routines while changing the words to bring you teenager Al Capone.
See Al Capone get the scars that earned his nickname Scarface. A Brooklyn TruStory performed 3 blocks from the spot of Al Capone’s knife fight, 100 years ago in Coney Island.
The audience will interact with performers, as if they were patrons of Coney Island’s Harvard Inn, a dive bar and gangster hangout, circa 1918. Food fights, fist fights, even a few murders take place in the audience. The audience is also welcome to get up and dance and to drink beer and eat pasta. Warm beer and lousy pasta served during shows - $5.
