Anthony Pinnunziato is approaching his forties and is faced with the challenges of balancing his now very successful company with past and present gay relationships. Fun characters come together to join him on his journey in this laugh-out-loud interactive fiasco comedy of errors.

My Big Gay Italian Midlife Crisis was first produced by Bianco Productions in New York City Off-Broadway at the Theater Center in November 2015 under the direction of James Valletti.

ANTHONY PINNUNZIATO – Male, late 30’s. Our Everyman. Stereotypical Italian-American boy next door type.  LEAD 
LARRY FANAZZI – Male, any age.  An Outrageously over-the-top exercise and healthy living icon.  Flamboyant and dramatic and naturally comedic.  LEAD 
ANDREW POLINSKI – Male, late 30’s or 40’s.  A distinguished and very handsome gentleman with the charm and demeanor to win over every gay man.  LEAD 
AUNT TONIANN – Female, late 40’s or 50’s.  Eccentric Italian-American woman with lots of attitude and absolutely no filter.  Comedic Actress.  Supporting 
CONNIE/WAITRESS – Female, 30’s or 40’s.  Comedic sketch actress who can pull off multiple roles.  Connie is an Italian-American lipstick lesbian with a good heart but lacks common sense.  The Atlantic City waitress is a hilarious scene stealer who barges in with the only entrance and exit.  Supporting 
LUCIA FUCCIO – Female, 30’s or 40’s.  Brassy and trendy lesbian.  Supportive of everyone around her but naturally neurotic.  Supporting 
NATHANIEL HOLLINGSWORTH – Male, 30’s.  A young billionaire entrepreneur who is too handsome and confident for his own good.  Supporting
