An Italian Straw Hat - 2008 - Regional (US)

John Strand (book and lyrics) and Dennis McCarthy (music) incorporate flavors not only of vaudeville but of ragtime, light opera and barbershop quartet in their adaptation of the classic farce by Eugene Labiche set in early 1900s New York.  Stefan Novinski helms the hilarity with musical direction provided by Dennis Castellano.
