Starring Danny DiTorrice Written and Directed by Mark W. Curran
“Forever Brooklyn!” is a one-man musical comedy about a Jewish-American boy growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the 1950s and 1960s. Telling his story through song, dialogue and comedy, a fledgling young comic recounts the challenges of his rise to stardom. It's the heartwarming and hilarious story of a kid who dreams of becoming a star...and how he makes his dreams come true.
"It's the funniest story I ever told!" - Melvin Kaplofkis
Melvin Kaplofkis is an idealistic kid growing up in Brooklyn. He longs for a career in show business. When he finally gets his big break he discovers his family and friends are not as happy as he is, especially the members of the local mob, who seek to keep him as their bag-man for the neighborhood.
How will Melvin ever be able to actualize his dream to become a big star in the face of impossible odds?
“Forever Brooklyn!” is a poignant, funny coming of age story about dreams, family, and a way of life that's been all but forgotten in the modern age. If you enjoyed Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" and the early films of Woody Allan, you'll love “Forever Brooklyn!”
