Over the River and Through the Woods

A comedy by Joe DiPietro


Joe DiPietro is the author of two of Starry Night's most popular shows, The Last Romance and I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change. So we are pleased to bring you Over the River which has the same big heart. 


Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job. The job he's been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma. Will they find a way to keep him close to home? It is a comedy of love, laughter and lots and lots of food!

This production ran for four performances, March 21-23, 2019.
