50 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT FRANK Begins at Theater for the New City, 9/1


THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY today announced the world premiere production of Gaspare Diblasi's 50 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT FRANK, directed by Jesse Marchese (assistant to the Artistic Director of Off-Broadway's award-winning Mint Theater Company). 50 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT FRANK will play a limited engagement at Theater for the New City , 155 1st Avenue (Between 9th and 10th Streets). New York, New York, 10003. Performances begin Saturday, September 1 and continue through Wednesday, September 5.

Frank Stampoli can't catch a break: between business class, dance callbacks and coming out... freshman year is tough. When he tells his family he has a boyfriend, his mother blames it on the fact that he hasn't found the right Italian girl. His father doesn't know what to say. And then there's Anthony... and those 50 things he loves about Frank. In the great tradition of Patti LuPone and Neil Simon comes an Italian-American, Brooklyn born-and-bred story about family, friendship, first boyfriends and pasta sauce. Come Meet The Stampoli's, for a night you'll never forget!
