Directed by David Fofi, the play features Palminteri as Sal Sicuso, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Rosie Sicuso, Kenny D'Aquila as Gino Sicuso and Carmen Argenziano as Carmelo.

Performances continue through May 31.

According to the production's official website, "Gino Sicuso, a forgotten brother and son, is banished by his father. What transpires is a gripping, savage and wildly humorous tale between two brothers and the love of a woman who is torn between loyalty and survival."

Palminteri, who received a Special Tony Award in 1990, was Tony-nominated for Outstanding Solo Performance in 2008 for A Bronx Tale.

Other members of the creative team include set designer Joel Daavid, lighting designer Nicholas Davidson, general manager Nicki Genovese and sound designer and composer Peter Bryne. The show is produced by Palminteri and Josh Silver. Dave Finkelstein is executive producer.

The Elephant Theatre is located at 1076 N. Lillian Way (at Santa Monica Blvd., one block west of Vine) in Hollywood, CA. For tickets call (800) 595-4849 or visit For more information visit
