Raise Me Up (Saturday Showing)
This event has expired. Please visit the Events Calendar for current listings.
It’s Lisa Phillips Visca’s critically acclaimed romantic comedy – a true story about a “moonstruck” couple’s forbidden love and the hilarity and drama from their deeply passionate Italian-Greek families. You’ll laugh…You’ll cry…You’ll never forget this spellbinding true true-love story.
Come to Staten Island circa 1950, where Daphne Theofanous and Louis Padula meet, fall in love, and struggle to balance their love of family, and each other, fighting against the older generation and parents still anchored in traditional ethnic, nationalistic, economic and religious divisions – divisions that mirror the uncertainty of today’s political and economic times where the younger generation, more than sixty years later, is still fighting to fulfill their dreams, and to share their lives with a partner of their own choosing.
Shows Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3:30pm, from October 15 to November 20, 2016.
