SNOW ORCHID, Starring Robert Cuccioli, Begins at Theatre Row Tonight

The Off-Broadway premiere of a new version of Joe Pintauro's classic drama SNOW ORCHID at the Lion Theatre on Theatre Row (410 W. 42nd St.), presented by the Miranda Theatre Company and directed by Valentina Fratti, will play a strictly limited four-week engagement, beginning tonight, February 3, and running through the 28th. The official Opening is on Sunday, February 8th, 2015.

Stephen Plunkett (War Horse), David McElwee (The Wayside Motor Inn) and Timothy Hassler (Fiddler on the Roof at Goodspeed) join Tony Award nominee Robert Cuccioli and Angelina Fiordellisi.

In 1964 Brooklyn, Rocco Lazarra (Cuccioli) is returning home to face his family, a year after having suffered a nervous breakdown. His fiery wife, Filumena (Fiordellisi), hasn't left their house since before his departure, and longs for her native Sicily. Their two sons -- Sebbie (Plunkett), a car mechanic, and Blaise (McElwee), a college dropout -- urge her to get out of the house, but with no success. Sebbie longs to escape his complicated relationship with his mother, who knows he is gay but denies it, while his younger brother Blaise tries to earn the motherly love Filumena has never shown him. And now, with Rocco's long-anticipated return, the family fears his temperament and instability will once again throw their lives into chaos.

Also starring Timothy Hassler as Doogan, SNOW ORCHID features scenic design by Patrick Rizzotti, costume design by Brooke Cohen, lighting design by Travis McHale, sound design and original music by Quentin Chiappetta and hair and wig design by Rob Green and J. Jared Janas. Rachel Reiner serves as Executive Producer and General Manager. Anne Berlin is Associate Producer.
