Acclaimed writer/performer CANDICE GUARDINO premiered the outrageous ITALIAN BRED Off-Broadway at St Lukes Theatre. Produced by Bull By the Horn Productions and 22Q Entertainment LLC, ITALIAN BRED opened at St Lukes on April 30, 2013 and closed on June 25, 2013.
About the play: “With this 80 minute one-woman show, Candice slipped in and out of characters as she cooked up a full meal of growing up Italian on Staten Island. Having written down everything her loving and outspoken grandmother ever uttered, she combined this unfiltered wisdom, along with her family’s VERY Italian and definitive personalities and a generous helping of her own experiences. This hilarious and heartwarming show included unique stories and memories from her childhood…with a liberal dash of live music! PLUS, at every performance, Candice enlisted a different Celebrity Guest Star to join in the storytelling.”
ITALIAN BRED also included a live three-piece band under the musical supervision of DAVID DABBON (Broadway-Sondheim On Sondheim (Grammy Nominee)and direction by DONNA DRAKE (Broadway-A Chorus Line, Sophisticated Ladies; Emmy nomination, 4 Drama Desk Nominations and a Theatre World Award). (CLOSED)
