The Ritz - 1983 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

This hilarious farce is set in a gay bathhouse of the title. When Gaetano Proclo, a hapless, middle-aged, overweight, very married man takes it on the lam from his Mafioso brother-in-law, Carmine Vespucci, he ducks into “The Ritz”, the last place anyone would look for him, not knowing what he has thrust himself into. What he encounters there sets the scene for an old-fashioned door-slamming farce, albeit with towel-clad chubby chasers, bumbling detectives, and Googie Gomez, an over-the-top would be Bette Midler looking for her big break...Funny!!!!!

What did our critic think of TWELVE ANGRY MEN at Theatre Latte Da? In a small New York City jury room, on 'the hottest day of the year,' twelve men debate the fate of a young defendant charged with murdering his father.
