WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Roundabout presents the world premiere of Napoli, Brooklyn, the latest work from Meghan Kennedy (Roundabout Underground's Too Much, Too Much, Too Many). Gordon Edelstein (The Road to Mecca) directs this fiery and poignant new play about an Italian immigrant household in 1960s Brooklyn.
In 1960 Brooklyn, the Muscolinos have raised three proud and passionate daughters. But as the girls come of age in a rapidly changing world, their paths diverge — in drastic and devastating ways — from their parents' deeply traditional values. Despite their fierce love, each of the young women harbors a secret longing that, if revealed, could tear the family apart. When an earth-shattering event rocks their Park Slope neighborhood, life comes to a screeching halt, and the Muscolino sisters are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future in this gripping, provocative portrait of love in all its danger and beauty.
