"We're overwhelmed by the response of the theatre loving community," said producer, Steve Sunshine.  "And that community has reached around the world with contributions from as far away as Hong Kong, New Zealand and Athens, Greece.  Our dream has always been Broadway, but our goal right now is to finance a 12-week run at The Matrix Theatre in L.A. in January – and people have just responded in an unimaginable way." 

"Serrano" is an homage to the classic, "Cyrano de Bergerac." In this adaptation, "Serrano" works for "Don Reyo," a mobster in Little Italy with an uncouth and foul-mouthed nephew, "Vinnie," who just happens to have the face of Adonis.  "Don Reyo" orders "Serrano" to teach his nephew how to woo the beautiful Rosanna for his own ill gotten means, and the lovely Rosanna doesn't stand a chance.  She falls in love with the beautiful words of "Serrano," but the sweet face of "Vinnie"!   

"Serrano" is directed by Tony nominee, Joel Zwick (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). "Serrano" is being presented by award winning Hollywood producers Mark Wolper, Steve Sunshine, Spencer Proffer and David Geha along with Phillipa Sledge. Music & Lyrics by Madeline Sunshine & Robert Tepper, and the Musical director is Jeff Rizzo.

"My wife and I saw an early production and it is very funny, great songs too!" said Mario Lopez, Host of "Extra" and a fan of "Serrano."

This is their first run at Broadway but they all have one thing in common: a life-long love of musical theatre.  For more about their campaign for Serrano, please visit:

The run will begin in January 2015 at The Matrix theatre in Hollywood, California.
