The Directors Company presents the world premiere of this drama about three guys who find a valuable instrument in the back seat of a NYC cab.
When Bobby, Terry, and Gio—two hapless brothers and an elderly broke tailor—find a 1710 Stradivarius violin worth $4 million in the back of a New York City taxi, it looks like an opportunity to change their fortunes. However, this shot at their dreams means some quick decisions testing loyalty and family ties with irrevocable consequences. Starring Broadway veteran Robert LuPone ('A Chorus Line,' 'The Sopranos.')
