3 EGG CREAMS: A RHAPSODY IN THE RAIN Returns to New Jersey
After a successful run in New York City's historic Cutting Room, 3 EGG CREAMS: A Rhapsody in the Rain returns to New Jersey on Sunday, August 11 at 2 pm & 6 pm Dante Hall Theatre at Stockton University in Atlantic City, NJ and then on September 14 at 7 pm 3 Egg creams will play the Strand Theatre, Lakewood, NJ.
Written and directed by George Cameron Grant and starring Vince Bandille, 3 EGG CREAMS has been described as "A Bronx Tale meets It's A Wonderful Life." It follows Vin Morrone (played by Bandille) as he traverses lessons in life, loss, and love. Whether you grew up on University Avenue in The Bronx, West Philly, or Cedar Falls, this humorous, heart-breaking, and ultimately transcendent journey redefines the mythos of the American male and even the meaning of love itself. 3 EGG CREAMS is inspired by and features the timeless music of the legendary Lou christie.
"Inspiration is a complex thing. Sometimes you experience a piece of work that sticks to you forever. For me, Lou christie's Lightning Strikes was one of those pieces. A year later, Lou's Rhapsody In The Rain reached my ears, and that was it so when it came time to write my own 'Urban Love Story for the Ages,' these brilliant pieces, along with Christmas In New York, became my emotional cornerstones. They made my work easy, so much so, I felt compelled to weave them throughout the show. I am forever grateful to Lou christie."
