Johnny Boy, Falcon Theatre
Written by Jeff Mandels
Directed by Arnold Margolin
Johnny Boy is an affectionate 'snapshot' of a simpler, more tranquil time in the life of the city we've all come to cherish, New York, as seen through the eyes of a 1950's middle-class Jewish family. A funny and touching Neil Simon-esque play about two teenage brothers coming of age during the summer of the historic 1955 Yankees vs. Dodgers World Series.
The cast of characters, in alphabetical order, included Rami Malek, Stephanie Venditto, Barbara Gruen, Richard Alan Brown, J. David Krassner and Tania Raymonde. TV and Broadway star Tony Danza took over the role of 'Lee' during its two-week extension from May 12-23.
