RECOMMENDED! "Hands down it's one of the BEST CASTS I've seen in a small-theatre World Premiere ... A middle-class Queens family ... drawn with fine, definitive strokes" - The Los Angeles Times
About the Show
Written by Jeff Mandels
Directed by Arnold Margolin
Opening Night is April 3 at 8pm.
Johnny Boy is an affectionate 'snapshot' of a simpler, more tranquil time in the life of the city we've all come to cherish, New York, as seen through the eyes of a 1950's middle-class Jewish family. A funny and touching Neil Simon-esque play about two teenage brothers coming of age during the summer of the historic 1955 Yankees vs. Dodgers World Series.
TV and Broadway star Tony Danza took over the role of 'Lee' during its two-week extension from May 12-23.
