Interactive comedies, in the tradition of shows like "Tony and Tina's Wedding," put the audience right in the middle of the action. This completely original comedy by New York and London playwright Kevin Hammonds is a true crowd pleaser. "Grandpa Tony's Funeral" can be performed in any location. Audience members act as mourners at the Italian family funera, even participating in the show by giving eulogies.
Audience members enter through metal detectors, offer their sympathies, act as pall bearers and stand before the mourners to read eulogies in honor of the beloved Tony Balsamo, Godfather of the Balsamo Mafia Crime Family.
Widow, Margherita Balsamo tries her best to keep her composure as her world falls apart around her. Her beloved husband was found dead in a hotel and it's anyone's guess who he was with at the time. Rumor has it that the woman in question is at the funeral itself, but the main question on everyone's mind is who will fill grandpa Tony's shoes and take over as the new "don" of the family.
