Winner of the coveted Kleban Prize and Richard Rodgers Award, Once Upon a Time in New Jersey is an Italian-American fairy tale set in 1956 Hoboken. Vinnie LoBianco (David Perlman), an unassuming sandwich-maker, is in love with counter girl Angie Moscato (Briga Heelan). But Angie's got it bad for Rocco (Jeremy Cohen), the local hunk, whose sights are set on sexy dance teacher Celeste (Catherine LeFrere). When Rocco runs afoul of Celeste's husband Billy (Jonathan Gregg), the result is a series of hilarious misunderstandings and madcap misadventure.



The Chicago Sun-Times praises Once Upon a Time in New Jersey's "delicious songs" and "huge audience appeal". BBC Liverpool calls it "An engaging, light-hearted musical in the tradition of Little Shop of Horrors". And The Daily Herald describes it as a "Tuneful, good-hearted, humorous and-most importantly-original show".



Brought to you by the co-authors and creative team behind Prospect's 2006 hit production of Iron Curtain, and presented as a partner event of The New York Musical Theatre Festival, Once Upon a Time in New Jersey is directed by Cara Reichel with choreography by Christine O'Grady (associate choreographer, Broadway's Hair). The musical director is Remy Kurs. Scenic design is by Jen Price Fick. Lighting design is by Isabella F. Byrd. Sound design is by Asa F. Wember. Costume design is by Sidney Shannon. Orchestrations and vocal arrangements are by Dimitri Nakhamkin.
