“The First Violin” is an intriguing and highly-emotional play, in five Acts. It offers unique insight into the everyday lives of normal, hard-working Italian immigrants, living in New York City during the late 1950’s. Fourteen-year-old Salvatore de Salvo, the eldest son of the family, is blessed with a precious and rare gift – he is a musical prodigy – who has a love of the violin. His talent offers him, as well as his whole family, a glimpse at a life that none of them ever imagined existed, let alone be part of. The dialogue is familiar and realistic, as could only come from an author who personally grew-up and lived immersed in, and surrounded by, that culture and ethnicity. “The First Violin” is guaranteed to make you laugh, and to make you cry. It is a memorable work offering incredible vignettes that can be enjoyed by all ages. It is a timeless and unforgettable play that will touch your heartstrings.
