Just as the new Bowery Theatre, now firmly under the leadership of artistic director Ralph Elias and production manager Mickey Mullaney, clearly believes in the power of a Shanley script. For this play is not just for lovers, but for that larger class of survivors who dare to take a chance on love after getting burned again and again.

It gives you hope--not that you will get a special dispensation from pain--but that pain can be a threshold that, if passed, can lead to joy. Everyone thinks Huey is crazy when he tries to get back his ex-wife, Janice. On another occasion, she tried to shoot Huey.

Only Janice can heal him, he tells his best friend, Aldo Scalicki. So Huey drives away his devoted girlfriend, Teresa, and in the madness that follows, all four of the characters learn things about themselves that change their lives forever.

Johnson again plays the puppy dog, so overflowing with feeling that he thinks he can love enough for the both of them. Kelly, with her pouting lips burning red under a dark cloud of curly hair, cuts a mesmerizing figure in lacy black as the woman who has no use for the love he or anyone else has to offer. Guest Equity artist Ken Myles narrates the action as Aldo, playing him with a suave charm that propels the action even as he smoothes over the fits and starts in the plot.

Stacey Rae is spirited as Teresa, the waitress who loves Huey, and Patricia Di Meo injects as much life as she can into Aunt May, whose thankless role in the play seems to be to alternately dispense wisdom and lend a shoulder on which to cry.

For most people, such ideas are fairy tales, as Aldo, in fact, describes this story to the audience. By John Patrick Shanley. Director is Ralph Elias. Costumes by Kelly Fuller. Set by Erik Hanson.

Italian American Reconciliation is an intoxicating dish

Even though Huey has been divorced for three years from his toxic ex Janice Anne Nottage , he stills longs for her so much that his food has no taste. So, he decides to break up with his long-suffering girlfriend Teresa, Dani Stoller the soup shop lady, to pursue Janice once again. Aldo gets caught in the middle. Few writers can match Shanley for his use of lyrical working class dialogue to create urban, working class opera. It was written just as Shanley was reaping the rewards of his Oscar winning script for Moonstruck , leading him to write a work similar enough to draw crowds at a time when he was so busy that he did not have the time or the need to tighten the work. Still, there is much pleasure to be found in Italian American Reconciliation. Shanley combines the best of Italian passion with Irish blarney to create conversations that provide a heightened romantic realism.
