Show Info

By Dan McCormick
Directed by Joseph Discher

With Robert LuPone, Peter Bradbury, and Kevin Isola

Broadway veteran Robert LuPone (A Chorus Line, OBC; True WestThe Sopranos) stars in a humorous and heartbreaking world premiere drama directed by Joseph Discher (Butler).

What happens when a world-renowned musician leaves his beloved instrument in the back seat of a New York City cab?

When Bobby, Terry, and Gio—two hapless brothers and a world-weary tailor—find a 1710 Stradivarius violin worth four million dollars in the back of a New York City taxi, it looks like the opportunity to change their fortunes may have landed in their laps. A shot at their dreams, however will mean some quick decisions testing loyalty and family ties with irrevocable consequences.
