BEHIND THE CURTAINS: 'Il Vizietto - La Cage Aux Folles'
A pochi mesi dal debutto, il cast de "IL VIZIETTO, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES," riproposto per la stagione 2012/2013 dopo una fortunata tournée nelle migliori piazze italiane, si prepara alla prima milanese del 4 dicembre al Teatro Manzoni e ci regala qualche chicca dal dietro le quinte. Lo spettacolo, diretto da Massimo Romeo Piparo, si avvale delle musiche sempreverdi di Jerry Herman (HELLO, DOLLY! - MAME), arrangiate da Emanuele Friello, e dello spassosissimo libretto di Harvey Fierstein (A CATERED AFFAIR - NEWSIES - KINKY BOOTS) e vanta un cast di tutto rispetto capitanato da Marco Columbro, nel ruolo di Renato (George, nella versione americana), e Ezio Iacchetti (THE PRODUCERS) nei vistosi panni di Albin/Zazà. In scena ci saranno anche Russell Russell (Jacob); Gianni Fantoni (che ritroveremo anche in The Full Monty) nel ruolo dell'On. Dindon, italianizzato Sant'Ann de Que; Chiara Barbagallo (M.me Sant'Ann de Que); Martino Iacchetti (Laurent); Chiara Nerozzi (Anne); Gloria Miele (Jaqueline) e Andrea Palotto (Francis) e uno spumeggiante ensemble in pailettes e tacchi a spillo.

Antonino (Nino) Prattico' was born on January 13, 1993 in Milan. He grew up in Reggio Calabria where he lived with his parents and his little brother until 2011. After graduation, he moved to Rome in order to undertake a bilingual degree course in Law at LUMSA University but he always dreamed to be a journalist. Since he was a child, Nino has showed a strong passion for entertainment: music, dance, drama… but his effective encounter with musical theatre (and theatre in general) occurred in 2007, when he got in contact with a local amateur theatrical company, specialized in the production of musicals. His curiosity drove him to be interested in various facets of this sector: its history, today's situation, repertoire and behind the scenes. At the present time, for fun, he dedicates himself to the adaptation and translation of American musicals in Italian language. Among his favorite shows: Gypsy, How To Succeed in Business (Without Really Trying), La Cage Aux Folles, Hello Dolly! and Mame. He’s very happy to have the chance to conciliate his greatest passion with his dream and he’s very happy to have the chance to do it with BroadwayWorld.com |
