This April and May for a very special limited engagement, Producer Paul Borghese returns Tony Darrow to the live stage of the Triad Theater to 'Rock the House'. Darrrow is a great story teller that loves to involve his audience with his "in your face", no-holes-barred humor. He is a multi-talented master on stage who will regale you with his not for the blushing humor and then surprise you by singing one of your classic favorites. His stage presence is something you can't put into words. "His character on stage is much like the characters he has so vividly portrayed in films" says Borghese.

"Come prepared to laugh your ass off" - James Gandolfini

Tony Darrow first made his mark as an upcoming comic on the stages of the biggest hotel casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City opening for comedy greats like Buddy Hackett. He has performed as a singer in Carnegie Hall and hosted his own talk show for several years in Australia. He took a leap to the big screen in movies like GoodFellas and Bullets Over Broadway. Both famed directors Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen claim to have discovered him.

Tony has appeared or co-starred in many other films; including Sweet and Lowdown, Deconstructing Harry, Mighty Aphrodite, Celebrity, Small Time Crooks and Searching for Bobby D just to name a few. His television credits include guest-starring roles on New York Undercover, Law and Order and was most recently seen as a regular on The Sopranos as "Larry Boy" Barese. Tony also recently completed filming the feature One Angry Man with Jackie Mason. Says Jackie Mason of Tony, "He's a tough son of a b---- who can really make you laugh!" Tony also stars in Lynch Mob, coming to theatres this summer. He expects to hit prime time TV in the new Reality Shows Dinner with the FoodFellas: an invitation you can't refuse co-hosted by Tony, Vincent Pastore and other former Sopranos cast mates, and Sit Down, both created by his producer and cousin Paul Borghese.

Louie "Scoops" Vanaria, Darrow's opening act at The Triad, is known for playing the role of 'Crazy Mario' in A Bronx Tale and for stealing the show in the movie Searching for Bobby D where he starred opposite Carmen Electra and Darrow. His first love is singing and boy will he sing as an opener for Darrow! Vanaria delights audiences with popular standards from Sinatra's "Fly Me To The Moon" to Van Morrison's "Moon Dance" as well as some show stoppers he plans on belting out to rock the stage!

In late 2008 Paul Borghese produced the successful sold out run of Louis LaRusso's Lamppost Reunion which starred Vincent Pastore and other former Sopranos cast members. He currently has the one-man Off Broadway show Blood Type: Ragu running at The Actors Playhouse in Greenwich Village playing to rave reviews! Borghese is becoming known for introducing some of these "GoodFellas" to the stage and live theatre, as well as bringing some of them back to the stage where they began their careers, like Darrow and Pastore. Borghese also produced the documentary Beyond Wiseguys with John Turturro among many other feature films and television shows.
