The Sopranos Move to Wisteria Lane in Fringe Fest's The Program

News   The Sopranos Move to Wisteria Lane in Fringe Fest's The Program Playwright Michèle Aldin returns to the New York Fringe Festival with her latest work, The Program, running Aug. 11–20.

Aldin, who was named one of Backstage's playwrights to watch with her Fringe production of Dear America, will present her new comedy, which asks, "What if the Sopranos moved to Wisteria Lane? The Program is about the Bianchino family from Brooklyn who are put under the Federal Witness Protection Program and relocated to suburbia. All they have to do is stay under the radar and follow the rules. But that's not easy for this family. Can they survive Minimal Integration and the mean streets of 'Everytown' USA? Who knows — it may be safer in Brooklyn."

The cast for The Program includes Bruce Barton, Kurt Elftmann, Wende O'Reilly, Cara Samantha Scherker and Ben Sumrall. Elysa Marden will direct the production.

Aldin received her MFA from New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, Dramatic Writing Program. Her musical Journey to Friday premiered at The New York International Fringe Festival in 1999.

The Program will play The New School for Drama Theater located at 151 Bank Street, Manhattan. For tickets and information call (212) 279-4888 or visit www.fringenyc.com.
