The musical, which is set in Manhattan in the Roaring Twenties, is the true story of "Eugenia and Vincent Sardi, two penniless Italian immigrants who built a restaurant on East 44th Street under the patronage of the most powerful man in the theatre, Lee Shubert: he simply couldn't resist the way Jenny cooked his smelts! With speakeasy-legend Texas Guinan at their side, our heroes defied eviction, bootleggers, and a Mafia Don to turn Sardi's into the most famous theatrical watering hole since The Mermaid Tavern."
