“RIOTOUS! THE FUNNIEST NEW COMEDY I’VE REVIEWED SINCE… WELL, MAYBE EVER.” -Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
"Sherie Rene Scott is DIVINE!" -The Hollywood Reporter
Jason Alexander is "DEAD-SOLID PERFECT." -The Wall Street Journal

Synopsis

In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta (Sherie Rene Scott) pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti (Jason Alexander). Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother (Mary Testa), a dash of current politics and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion. This feisty romantic comedy could only come from John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the MTC hits Doubt and Outside Mullingar, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.

Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes, with no intermission

Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club. The Portuguese Kid is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
