AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
SYNOPICS: Follow the dominating but lovable matriarch, Maria Barbieri, as she and her devoted husband Gino struggle to keep the family restaurant afloat while adjusting to the newly found independence of their New Jersey born adult grandchildren who they have raised since birth. The show is family friendly and laugh out loud funny with clever humor and universal themes of adjusting and adapting and what it takes to keep a family together.
Based on the play and screenplay by Steve Galluccio & Emile Gaudreault, this musical adaptation features a book by Jean Cheever and Tom Polum, lyrics by Omri Schein and music by James Olmstead.

shuts down any discussion of becoming more “modernized”. Clings to traditional (Mix-Belt)
Gino Barbieri (60’s) – Husband of Maria. Italian grandfather of Anna and Angelo. He is a bit more relaxed and open to change, but always defers to Maria. Sweet, loving, loyal. (Baritone)
