Talk: Sal Annunziato on being “Part of the Family—A Mob Childhood” Mon., Dec. 17 (SOLD OUT!)

(THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! REALLY, THERE ARE NO SEATS LEFT.)

We’ve all seen “The Godfather” and “Goodfellas.” But what’s it really like growing up in a mob family?

Sal Annunziato, whose grandfather Midge Renault was one of New Haven’s most infamous mobsters and whose father also ended up in the “family” business, tells all in this one-man show at Best Video Performance Space on Monday, Dec. 17.

Sound cool? Think again. Funny, horrific, sad, inspiring, Sal describes going through hell before finally emerging whole on the other side.
