Buy Tickets For Philosophy for GangstersBuy Tickets

Callie Rizzoli has a lot on her plate - not only has she inherited her parent's mafia empire after they were murdered, she has to avenge their deaths, deal with the philosopher she's holding hostage, and try keep out of the clutches of the FBI now that she has made the top slot on their Most Wanted list!

The members of her 'organisation' aren't your typical mafia criminals though - they see themselves as having a code of honor and some responsibility to uphold. Ironically, these guiding principles lead them to kidnap an unsuspecting philosopher, after they deduce that it is philosophy - not crime or poverty - that has caused most of the issues in today's world.

Philosophy for Gangsters is one of the smartest mafia comedies you'll find on-stage today, and will be performed at the Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row for a limited run only!
