Directed by Susan Campanaro, Bobby Spillane's comedy is set to begin performances at Theatre Row's Acorn Theatre April 29 with an official opening May 7. The limited engagement, which is being presented by Colin Quinn and Working Stiffs Productions, will play through June 11.
All Dolled Up is set in the sixties and is based on the life of a cross-dressing gangster. The comedy, according to press notes, concerns the life of "Salvatore, a wiseguy from Bensonhurst who is trying to keep his newly discovered dressing fetish a secret from his associates.
