Beth Leavel, Jared Zirilli & More Will Take Part in CAPONE Reading

Caiola Productions will present a private reading of the new musical CAPONE. CAPONE stars Danny Aiello with book, music and lyrics by Robert Mitchell and directed by Alexander Dinelaris. The reading will be this Friday, November 18th.

CAPONE is a fantastical journey that takes us into the mind of one of the most notorious and iconic gangsters of all time. Facing his final hours, Al Capone finds himself battling both the angels and enemies who materialize before him, and guide him on his path toward salvation or to ultimate damnation. Proud of his legendary status and notoriety but ashamed of his sins, CAPONE is a story of the inevitable price we all pay in the blind pursuit of recognition and legacy.

The cast of the November 18th reading will include Danny Aiello (The Godfather: Part II, Once Upon a Time in America, The Purple Rose of Cairo) as Al, Morgan Weed as Mae, Beth Leavel as Mother, Katie Chung as Fosse Girls, Jennifer Bowles as Fosse Girls, Jared Zirilli as Sonny, TEd Koch as Johnny Torrio, Rocco Sisto as Gabriel. 101 Productions will serve as Executive Producers.
