Eastbound Theatre performance news

Eastbound Theatre, a division of the Milford Fine Arts Council, presents the second show of its 14th season, Tom Dulack’s hilarious comedy, Breaking Legs directed by Milford resident, Robert Watts. The show runs from February 1st through 17th. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 PM, Sunday matinees are at 2 PM. Tickets are $15.00 general admission, $12.50 for seniors and students.

The worlds of the Mafia and the theater clash hilariously in Breaking Legs when a professorial playwright seeks funding for his new play from the family of a former student. The "family" turns out to be minor Mafia godfathers, who are willing to underwrite the play, provided they never have to read it. The hilarious action occurs in an Italian restaurant owned by a successful mobster and managed by his beautiful unmarried daughter. When the daughter's former college professor arrives to ask for financial backing for a play he's written about a murder, the fun begins. The three main Mafiosi are intrigued with the idea of producing a play. The daughter becomes enamored of the playwright, who is delighted to have the family's support. His bubble is burst when he discovers, through the "accidental" death by train of a lesser thug, that his backers are gangsters. In this madcap situation, murder and menace are served up with plenty of pasta and laughter.
The cast features Dave Gregory (Milford), David Victor (Fairfield), Lisa Dahlstrom (Fairfield), Vic Terenzio (Norwalk), Stephen DiRocco (Wilton) and John Spinetti(Shelton). Other contributors to this production include Director/Set Designer, Robert Watts, Producer, Sharon Huguet, Stage Manager, Elsie Poile and Costumer, Amy Cacciamani.
