Scott Raneri Continues Debut Run of Solo Cabaret Show THE MARVELOUS MR. MARZO Photo Scott Raneri Continues Debut Run of Solo Cabaret Show THE MARVELOUS MR. MARZO

When Actor/Singer Scott Raneri was pondering a theme for his New York Solo Cabaret Debut Show, he decided to go back to his roots-literally. Last December, Raneri registered to take a DNA test with the ubiquitous genetic testing company 23andMe. Raneri wanted to learn more about his ancestry and his health profile.

Hence, the show's title.
