If you've seen the precursor, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, you know what's ahead of you, a night of laughs and fun as these plays find the humor in 21st century families coming to term with new issues amid ingrained stereotypes left over from the century before.
In My Big Gay Italian Wedding, which has toured the country and was recently seen at Resorts this past summer, creator/writer and three-time Emmy Winner Anthony Wilkinson plays Anthony Pinnuziato. Spoiler alert, Anthony does end up marrying his partner, played by Brandon Goins, but not without some clever maneuvering to please his Italian parents as well as some out-manuevering of a past boyfriend who does not this marriage to become until death do you part.
In My Big Gay Italian Funeral, Anthony's father dies, and his uncle Pete, who is also gay, reunites with the family after years of separation. Expect the same wacky mayhem to ensue as we saw in My Big Gay Italian Wedding.
Anthony J Wilkinson adds, "I have always wanted to see my shows in the Casino's and it seems like a perfect new home for them right now."
In addition to Anthony J Wilkinson, the cast included Nick Palazzo, Robin Siegal Lakin, Rocco Aldo Palmieri, Gina Scarda, Debra Toscano, Kim Pirrella, Bret Dougle, Elena Barone, Mark Corally, Vito Cimiluca, Mia Y. Anderson, Geri Hubmer and Marta Lefsky. The show is directed by Sonia Blangiardo and Teresa Anne Cicala and produced by Bianco Productions.
