Queen for a Day
As a made man and the brother of a mafia boss, Giovanni is living the life—for now. It’s the winter of 2011, just after the largest sweep of organized crime in history, and federal agents are giving him a once-in-a-lifetime chance: spill everything he has on his family in exchange for total immunity. It’s a deal called “Queen for a Day,” and it’s the one thing guaranteed to test the mobster’s opposing impulses of loyalty and survival.
Fans of crime drama will recognize many of the players in this new production, with a Sopranos reunion taking place right on stage. David Proval (Tony Soprano’s troublesome brother-in-law Richie Aprile) plays the tormented lead, and Vincent Pastore (Tony’s best friend Sal “Big Pussy” Bompensiero) lends a squinting gravitas to the unwitting boss. David Deblinger (Uncle Junior’s doctor, Rene Katz) rounds out the Sopranos veterans as Federal Agent Sanford. In addition to a cast famous for playing heavies onscreen, playwright Michael Ricigliano Jr. also knows a thing or two about crime and punishment—he’s a practicing lawyer and the author of the feature film Lily of the Feast. The drama also stars the Broadway actress Portia, who appeared in Ride Down Mt. Morgan and the Pulitzer Prize-winning production of Ruined.
