A premiering play, The Boom is being shown this summer at the Dream Up Festival 2015 at the Theatre for the New City in New York, NY. The festival takes place from August 30 to September 20, 2015. Playwright Vinnie Nardiello and Director, Mark Riccadonna team up to debut themselves in each respective role with this new show, in which the proverbial wrench is thrown into the mix when a comedy club owner switches  the opening and headlining acts in his club. Follow the story and struggle of up-and-comer Ray Messina and the eccentric “reformed addict turner religious freak relic of the late 80s comedy boom”. Mark Riccadonna, a seasoned performer, writer and comedian is expressing his talents in directing on this production, by first time writer, Vinnie Nardiello.
