Oscar, Tony, and Pulitzer-winner John Patrick Shanley's passionate comedy Italian American Reconciliation is subtitled a folktale. Teresa loves Huey. Huey loves Teresa but a piece of him still belongs to his ex-wife Janice. Janice wants to take pieces out of everyone. But Huey has to get Janice back. He enlists his best friend, Aldo, in a plan to win Janice. Aldo loves Huey so much that he is willing to lose a pretty big piece of himself. Life? Happiness? Marriage? Love? Questions they all are trying to figure out. But the ultimate goal is to "throw away your book of fear and open your heart."
