'A Queen for a Day' Off Broadway Review: A Mobbed-Up Drama Reunites Two "Sopranos" Actors

'A Queen for a Day' Off Broadway Review: A Mobbed-Up Drama Reunites Two

OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

Still miss “The Sopranos”? Do you hanker for more stories about modern-day wise guys?

If so, familiar faces and mobbed-up content can be found at “A Queen for a Day,” a new drama that premiered on Sunday at Theater at St. Clement’s.

Among the able cast of this Off Broadway production is Vincent Pastore, who is fondly remembered as Big Pussy in “The Sopranos.” He is joined by fellow “Sopranos” actor David Proval, known to fans of the HBO series as ruthless Richie Aprile, who literally got all cut up over his fatal fiancée, Janet Soprano.

A suspenseful drama by Michael Ricigliano, Jr., “A Queen for a Day” proves to be plenty talky but it grows ever more compelling as Nino (Proval), an aging racketeer, reluctantly agrees to rat out Pasquale (Pastore), his even bigger-shot of a baby brother.
