Bensonhurst will say goodbye to Manhattan this weekend as the critically-acclaimed off-Broadway show A Brooklyn Love Story lights up the stage of the Manhattan Repertory Theatre for its last show.
The show is a one-woman performance that is written and performed by Chiara Montalto and directed by Ronnie Marmo. The story takes place entirely in Bensonhurst. Here is the synopsis from the press release.
What happens when a twenty something granddaughter moves into the Bensonhurst, Brooklyn row house of her eighty-something grandfather? A Brooklyn Love Story is a hilarious and moving story about the profound relationship between a grandfather and a granddaughter as one’s life is ending and the other’s is just beginning.
The show is scheduled for this Sunday, June 2 at 7 p.m., at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre (303 West 42nd Street, 6th Floor.) Tickets are $20. To make an electronic reservation, you can email MRTRESERVE@gmail.com.
