MULBERRY STREET—THE TRILOGY. Mary Jane and I were able to get tickets for the Curtain Call production in Stamford of A Merry Mulberry Street Musical. The show is the third in a series of “Mulberry Street” plays about immigrant Italian-American families. The original play was written by Albert Pia and first produced in 1939. Lou Ursone wrote and performs in the new musical. His father and a great uncle were in the original production. One of the Mulberry Street plays is performed almost every year now, and they sell out fast. It’s a small theater, about 80 seats, and a small stage area. Why are the plays so popular? One reason is that people know they will have a good time.
