Oscar nominee Eric Roberts (Runaway Train, The Pope of Greenwich Village) will star in an industry reading of Vincent Gogliormella’s new play Love Goumbas Style September 27 in Manhattan.
Joining Roberts will be Amanda Bruton (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Dominic Scaglione Jr. (Jersey Boys), Rico Simonini (Frank and Ava), Johnny Tammaro (The Wanderer), and Joli Tribuzio (A Room of My Own).
Charles Messina will direct the comedy, which spotlights an Italian family that includes Donna and Jimmy as they strive to reignite a waning flame; Mikey and Susan on their whirlwind wedding detour; Lenny and Claudine as they discover passion in the quirkiest corners; and Wendy, torn between choices and chances. This play culminates at a New Year’s Eve bash in a mobster’s lavish NYC townhouse.
Gogliormella’s plays also include Six Goumbas and a Wannabe and Whatta Ya Nuts!
Casting is by Michael Cassara. Jill Menza is the executive producer.
