Over The River and Through the Woods

metro theatre over the river

Such a great cast sees Nick, a young single man from New Jersey, is the only member of his family who’s still geographically convenient to his two sets of Italian-American grandparents. He loves them and sees them every Sunday for dinner, but they drive him a little crazy. When Nick announces that he wants to move to far away Seattle to accept a promotion for work, the news doesn’t sit so well – actually it is tantamount to a declaration of war. Why would he , his grandparents wonder, want to leave his family? Would a girl make him stay? Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around that are absolutely hilarious and undeniably tender. We invite you  to laugh a little, cry a little and have a nice lasagna.

Mr. DiPietro says, “The biggest difference between these generations is their concept of family and home. Our grandparents believed that the family was central, and work is something you do just to provide for them. For our generation, it’s a lot more complicated.”
