In the lounge Festa Robert Firpo-Cappiello

About This Show

Festa is a 40-minute solo show in which a grown man, Bobby, recalls episodes from his youth in a working-class Catholic neighborhood. Festa employs a poetic street vernacular that mingles dark humor with childlike wonder as it explores the surreal nature of early childhood and the turbulent and tender awakenings of teenage sexuality.
