Hear What's in the Heart: An Italian Shoemaker's Tale

May 2 – 6, 2018

HEAR WHAT’S IN THE HEART celebrates the life of Steve Scionti’s beloved grandfather, Angelo Morello, bringing to life all the passion, comedy and drama that’s part of most any Sicilian-American family. Against the backdrop of Angelo‚Äôs funeral, Scionti paints a loving family portrait by transforming himself into an array of relatives and friends – including his two shady uncles and the crazy pizza guy – telling the humorous and affecting story of his journey into adulthood.
