Performances begin tomorrow, September 1 and continue through Wednesday, September 5. Get a first look at the cast onstage in the photos below!

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!

The production stars Gaspare Diblasi* (A Chorus Line, Nat'l Tour) as Frank Stampoli, Margo Singaliese* (Louis LaRusso's Sweatshop Off-Broadway; "Sopranos", "Law and Order") as Josephine Stampoli, Tommaso DiBlasi as Joey Stampoli, Vince Bandille as John Stampoli, Christian Castro ("Law and Order") as Anthony, Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld (Voice of Nurse Joy on the animated series of "Pokémon" on Cartoon Network) as Nadine and Seth Grugle* (Next to Normal, Regional) as Jake/Doctor/Priest. *performing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association.
