LOS ANGELES -- Uncle Sam's Umbrella, a new political comedy starring John La Motta and Emmy-winning James Luisi (First Ladies Diaries), opens May 15 at the Two Roads Theatre in Studio City for a six-week run.

LaMotta is frequently seen in the recurring role of the tavern- owner in the current hit series Frazier. His Broadway credits include Man of La Mancha and She Loves Me.
