What People Are Saying About
The Last Sicilian: A One Man Play
"Nick Albanese is a gifted storyteller who cuts a warm, sociable figure reminiscent of a young Paul Sorvino, and quickly establishes a friendly rapport with his audience. The stories of his father’s days in the service and how he managed to finagle a Section 8 discharge based completely on his brother’s reputation alone were wonderful, unique and very entertaining."
