It's like "Mrs. Doubtfire" meets "Goodfellas!" In 1997, at the height of Tony Finelli's fame, his manager Jürgen was contacted by an “employee” of the Italian Mafia boss Mr. Big to hire Tony for a big concert. This “employee” was actually Agent Schmitt an undercover agent for the German CIA. Schmitt was leading a sting operation to arrest Mr. Big. However, Mr. Big succeeded in blackmailing Tony and Jürgen. Caught between the Mafia and the German CIA, they decided to go to prison for Mr. Big to save their families being murdered by the mob.
On the day of their release, no one meets them at the prison gate. Tony returns home with the hopes of rebuilding his life, onlyto discover that his wife Tina has divorced him. Now a single mother with two children and no income, Tina converted Tony's mansion into a Bed and Breakfast. Tina shares the mansion with, daughters Lola (27) and Lena (20), Tony's parents Pete and Bea Finelli, and his ancient Sicilian grandmother "Nonna." Four generations of Finellis are living under one roof.
Recently, the janitor in Tina’s BnB quit. In order to stay close to his family and win them over again, Tony, the proud peacock swallows his pride and takes over the job. Take Tony’s two left hands, add the Finelli Family, the reappearance of both Mr. Big and Agent Schmitt, mix well, and you have the perfect recipe for the comedic chaos that is “The Finellis Musical.” Based on the Award-Winning Film, "The Finellis Musical" tickles your funny bone and touches your heart. The musical is chock-a-block with soaring melodies and clever lyrics of songs like "Here I Am Again," "Zombie Heart," and "Love Will Never Die" by composer Ulf Weidmann. "The Finellis" book and lyrics are by Mark Janicello.
