Can Italian-American Nick leave his beloved but demanding grandparents

And will they let him?

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

So he tells them

But the news doesn't sit so well

Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around

How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents?

Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best

And that includes bringing to dinner the lovely - and single - Caitlin O'Hare as bait


"A hilarious family comedy that is even funnier than his long-running musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change" ~ BackStage.

"Loaded with laughs every step of the way" ~ Star-Ledger.
