SPOTLIGHT ON: STEVE SCIONTI - MAY 7, 2013
By Ed Wierzbicki of All Things Connecticut, CPTV

For a Middletown kid who was kicked out of Jerry’s Pizza over twenty-five times, Steve Scionti the adult is doing just fine. The actor-writer, who recently re-rooted himself in Connecticut after acareer in LA and elsewhere, has taken the memories of his youth and the colorful characters ofhis Sicilian family to create a high-energy, one-man play: Hear What’s In The Heart—AShoemaker’s Tale. Scionti will perform every Thursday night this spring, May 16-June 20, at theOddfellow’s Playhouse; just a stone’s throw from his grandfather’s shoe shop, St. Sebastian’s, and the Middletown neighborhoods that shaped him.

LA VOCE / Las Vegas - OCTOBER 4, 2011
Anthony Crivello: Preludes and Encores to “Phantom of the Opera”
By Antoinette Silicato

"Anthony “Tony” Crivello is an explicitly centered and intelligent actor-singer-director-writer, who was the winner of a 1993 Tony Award for Best-Supporting Actor in a Musical and the role he played was the original Valentin in Hal Prince’s Kiss of a Spider Woman, at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City. 
(His list of credits) goes on, and it’s to no surprise that his writing credits are equally impressive.

(After seeing a workshop run of the show in Las Vegas ) His co-authorship and direction of the one-man stage play, “Hear What’s In The Heart (A Shoemaker’s Tale)” co-authored and starring Steve Scionti is nothing short of brilliant. Crivello’s director skills meticulously brings out Scionti’s emotions from the very depth of his soul and has audiences laughing and crying with absolute abandon. A (future) Las Vegas run of the play is in the works and La Voce will keep you posted. “Hear What’s In The Heart” is not to be missed!!!
"

Time Out - New York

“My review can be summed up in four words: Go See This Play! Actor-writer Steve Scionti plays eight characters in his courageous homage to his Italian-American family, which might well remind you at some point of yours."   

 

GreevilleOnline.com by Ann Hicks on Februray 14, 2009

"Sicilian-American Steve Scionti's one-man show, "HEAR WHAT'S IN THE HEART: A Shoemaker's Tale", well deserved all the shouts of "bravo" and vigorous applause it received on Friday night. Scionti spins an all-encompassing fairy tale as richly varied as Sicilian spices, about family, personal passions and eternal longing for a better life."

Show Bio


The play - [original script written by Steve Scionti and James Shanta / new draft by Steve Scionti and Anthony Crivello] and performed by Scionti (a former Middletown, Connecticut resident) - brings to life all the passion, comedy and drama inherent in a Sicilian-American family.

Hear What's In The Heart - A Shoemaker's Tale, is set against the backdrop of a post-funeral gathering to celebrate the life of Scionti's grandfather, Angelo Morello (who owned Angleo's Shoe Repair on Main Street in Middletown).

Taking us through the funeral day's events, Scionti paints a theatrical family portrait in a series of humorous and poignant vignettes transforming himself into various family members and friends, jumping back and forth through time to affecting moments on his journey into adulthood. Eight characters are portrayed in all, including his grandfather; his father Sebastiano; his mother Rosetta; brother Antonio; uncles Amadeo and Manny; Jerry, the local neighborhood pizza-maker; and Brother Connelly, a teacher from Xavier High School in Middletown, CT.

"Family goes across all racial and ethnic lines. You don't have to be Italian to enjoy this show," states Scointi, and Alvin Klein of The New York Times agrees, adding, "...though Mr. Scionti makes you think you are. By the time the tale of Angelo Morello has been told, you know that flights of angels truly sang him to his rest."
