TMB's BIG SHOT will play as a part of Los Angeles Performance Practic and Bootleg Theater's PERFORMANCE EXCHANGE, a curated showcase during the 2016 WAA conference in Los Angeles.
BIG SHOT is a vaudevillian theatrical collage inspired by The Godfather films and novel. TMB shakes down this iconic story to create a new work, echoing the source and investigating family dynamics, power, criminal behavior, and being an Italian American. In BIG SHOT, the American gangster genre is upended through stylized theatrics, dynamic movement, song, dance and pasta.
