SIX GOUMBAS AND A WANNABE is a hysterical and heartwarming story about the twenty year reunion of a group of "neighborhood guys" with emotional ties and a bond so strong that it makes twenty years seem like only twenty minutes.  A wild night in Atlantic City leads the six "Goumbas" (one deceased) and the "Wannabe"  to re-live many hilarious moments and reveal a few surprising never heard before secrets from their old Brooklyn days.  Playwright Vincent Gogliormella is the nephew of the late actor Vincent Gardenia.
