Breaking Legs
A Comedy
English professor and playwright Terence O’Keefe is about to discover that there’s no business like show business…. unless it’s “the family business.” Terence hopes Lou, the father of former student Angie Graziano who runs an Italian restaurant, will invest in his latest play. Although they are theatre fans, “Break a Leg” means something entirely different to them. Lou’s mafia money comes with an order to marry his daughter and Terence already has a wife. After witnessing an unfortunate accident, Terrence realizes he is in way over his head. Will he wind up married to the mob, or will this fish-out-of-water find himself sleeping with the fishes? Well-seasoned with irresistible innuendo, laughter is on the menu as this deliciously dark comedy serves up spaghetti with a side of murder, menace, and meatballs.
Note: Leave the kids at home for this one! The show contains adult comedy and sexual content.
