A direct descendant of Tony 'n' Tina's Wedding--two of that show's creators are among the writers here, and one of them directs--this "interactive comedy" takes the form of a party celebrating the title mobster's release from prison. Patrons are greeted as old pals by cast members, and the mingling continues through dinner, dancing, and dessert. The story--with a cache of diamonds as the MacGuffin--holds no surprises, the jokes are stale, and the party atmosphere is forced (especially the sing-along to a couple of Sinatra chestnuts). The location, however, is brilliant: a charming, dumpy Italian restaurant just a block away from an actual federal prison. The kitchen's homey, zesty food might steal the show even if the competition were stiffer. --Dan Weissmann
