This heartwarming musical takes audiences through a humorous and emotional trek across three generations of Sicilian-Americans, living in New York’s Little Italy, as they uncover family secrets.
The original musical about Sicilians, Neapolitans and Jewish Businessmen, titled “They Call it Gravy; WE Call it SAUCE!,” has scheduled its final three performances in New Jersey, Oct. 11-13, at the Brook Arts Center before it crosses the Hudson.
“They Call it Gravy; WE Call it SAUCE!” tells the story of Rosa, a second-generation Sicilian living in New York’s Little Italy with her parents. Her father is a proud Sicilian man firmly entrenched in the only “old world” customs he knows. When his unmarried daughter tells him that she’s expecting, he disowns and banishes her. Twenty-something years later, Rosa’s Jewish-raised daughter, Barbara, unaware of her Sicilian heritage, uncovers the family secret and digs-in to discover her roots.
“Gravy-Sauce” performances will take place over the Columbus Day Weekend. Showtimes are Oct. 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. and October 13 at 2 p.m.
