“They’re Shooting on Our Song”

New York, roaring 1920s
The Spanish flu epidemic a distant memory, everybody hopes for fresh and uncontaminated future and the action takes place right in the full prohibition, where the underworld is thriving and with it a thick undergrowth of unscrupulous.

The story is accompanied by the contemporaneity of some of the most famous and enthralling pop and rock songs. You will hear hits from international stars such as Abba, Michael Jackson, Freddy Mercury, Prince and also popular Italian Artists as Renato Zero and many others,
Here my doubt: was the script written upone thos hits lyrics… or vice versa, the authors found songs with lyrics that could fill in the action?

In both cases, the play ( just 80 minutes, no intermission) gives moments of laugh and thought like the sadly impressive “C’era un ragazzo che come me amava i Beatles e i Rolling Stones” ( In both cases, the play ( just 80 minutes, no intermission) gives moments of laugh and thought like the sadly impressive “C’era un ragazzo che come me amava i Beatles e i Rolling Stones” (There was a kid who just like me loved The Beatles and The Rolling Stone) while the backdrop of the stage is lightened with the “rainbow peace” colors
Italian TV and movie star Veronica Pivetti is Jenny Talento, florist by day. opium dealer at night, who ends up giving in to the advances of Nino Miseria, a poker player, greatly played by hunk Brian Boccuni, (Pinocchio, Next to Normal)

The desire to resurrect, after the years of the pandemic, blows passion and Jenny lets herself be drawn into a lost world of crime, sex, love and jealousy, all controlled bythe most feared gangster in the city, Micky Malandrino, played by Christian Ruiz (Priscilla Queen of desert)
The colored fumes of the streets of Manhattan,dark glasses, machine guns, fishnet stockings, sparks and songs… they are al there, to bring back a time that is aiming to resurrect .

Till January 8th at Teatro Franco Parenti, Milan
