The Ritz officially opened on Thursday, October 11 on Broadway at Studio 54 (254 West 54th St) where it will play a limited engagement through December 2, 2007. 

"When garbageman Gaetano Proclo's brother-in-law orders him killed by the mob, he hides in the most unsuspecting place -- a gay bathhouse! Hilarity and chaos ensue, as Gaetano and his outrageous new friends hatch a plan to save his life," explain press notes.

The Ritz, written by Terrence McNally, is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli.  The cast stars Rosie Perez, Kevin Chamberlin, Brooks Ashmanskas plus performances by Ashlie Atkinson and Seth Rudetsky.
