Conceived and developed by Broadway producer Peter Schneider (The Lion King, Sister Act), Cassi and New York-based journalist Patrick Pacheco (NY1's "Onstage"), My Life With Men will have performances March 9-10 at the Madison Theatre and March 15-18 at New York City's 45th Street Theatre.
Performed in English and Italian, the semi-autobiographical play is co-written by Cassi and Pacheco.
In My Life With Men, according to producers, "Cassi offers a rollicking crash course in love, seduction, death — and olive oil. In this tour-de-force performance, Cassi charts a hilarious path from fearful repression to rueful wisdom, inimitably bringing to life a host of characters including her reproachful mother, a faithless boyfriend, an American bag lady, a volatile chef-husband and friends who, like her, are fools for love."
Other members of the creative team include set designer Gianni Carluccio, costume designer William Ivey Long, lighting designer A.J. Weissbard and musical director James Edwards. Images are by Valeria Palermo.
