Ticket Information


This hilarious inter-generational comedy centers around Nick, a single Italian-American marketing executive on the fast career track. His parents have long since retired and moved FAR away from the grandparents and, in fact, Nick sees both sets every Sunday for dinner. This has become a comfortable and joyous routine until Nick is offered a dream promotion which will necessitate his relocation to Seattle. This news throws the older generation into a tizzy. The emotionally fraught reactions of the grandparents evolve into a number of hilariously misguided schemes to keep Nick from leaving, including a bit of last-minute matchmaking - which very nearly succeeds!

"A hilarious family comedy that is even funnier than his long running musical revue I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change." -BackStage.

"Loaded with laughs every step of the way." -Star-Ledger.
