Nonna's Party is a brilliantly hilarious love letter to Burton's Sicilian roots and obvious affection for her family. This one woman comedy show has this beautiful cinematic feel where the audience experiences live theater, film, song and dance in a party like atmosphere.
When Nonna is a no-show for her own surprise 85th birthday party, her granddaughter “Ash-a-ly” keeps the guests entertained with stories of this feisty Sicilian grandmother and slower paced Nonno. Nonna isn't afraid to speak her mind, especially when it comes to potential "boyfriends" - "Hey Ash-a-lee you likey big or the skinny sausegeous? Ha!"
Throughout the show we see her transform into the famous character of her mother. Not your typical stay at home mom. Oh no! More like Zsa Zsa Gabour meets Peggy Bundy. Audience members are taken on a ride filled with laughter, tears and of course home made wine.
Don't miss this very unique piece of theatre that truly can't be compared to anything else!
