THEATER | 'Italian Bred'


For one performance only, writer and actress Candice Guardino brings her successful one-woman show "Italian Bred" — now being developed into a T.V. series — to The Lyric Theatre this Friday. The comedy, originally developed through a series of stand-up performances, draws from Guardino's Italian upbringing in Brooklyn. Through humorous impersonations of her own family members, Guardino points to universal life experiences to which everyone can relate, regardless of background. The show also features "virtual celebrity cameos" from the likes of Mario Cantone ("Sex and the City") and Steve Schirripa ("The Sopranos").

Candice Guardino will perform "Italian Bred" on Friday, June 15, at The Lyric Theatre, 440 East Avenue. 8 p.m. $32.50-$37.75. 256-0444.;
