BERLIN (AUGUST 20th - SEPTEMBER 25th, 2010) - The Connecticut Cabaret Theatre is pleased to announce its production of the Tom Dulac's comedy "BREAKING LEGS". The worlds of the Mafia and the theatre clash hilariously when a professorial playwright seeks funding for his new play from the family of a former student. The "family" turn out to be minor Mafia godfathers who are willing to underwrite the play provided they never have to read it. The fact that the lusty, unwed daughter of the house falls in love with the playwright only furthers his involvement with the Mob. "There is a buoyant joy to be had in the comic confrontation between two of the wackiest gangster chieftains ever to wack..." -NY Post. "There are funny lines throughout." -NY Daily News. "BREAKING LEGS is a crowd pleaser that should provide an additional layer of enjoyment for people in and of the theatre. It is what comedies on Broadway used to be like not that many years ago. Welcome back." -BackStage.
Artistic Director KRIS McMURRAY has assembled a talented cast to portray this gang. LENNY FREDERICKS, no stranger to the stage, plays the role of Lou, the head of the gang. His beautiful daughter, Angie, played by MELISSA INGRISANO, runs the family restaurant and brings her professor teacher in for funding of his play. MICHAEL ECK plays Terrence O'Keefe, the English professor bravely requesting backing from Lou's mafia. TOM ROOHR and PAUL BRACCIOFORTE make up the henchmen turned critics as they review the said play. Laughter, murder and mayhem abound in this hilarious mafia meets theatre comedy. This is not a show to miss!
