3 Egg Creams
3 EGG CREAMS comes to the Cutting Room on Valentine’s Day 2019 after almost a year of sold out performances, including two wildly successful shows on the Historic stage of the Strand Theater in Lakewood, NJ., garnering an ever-growing family of friends, fans, and followers wherever it travels including Brooklyn Seltzer Boys now an official sponsor of 3 Egg Creams. Called “A Bronx Tale meets It’s A Wonderful Life,” 3 Egg Creams stars Vince Bandille as Vin Morrone, depicting one man’s lessons in life, loss, and love, with 1 actor, 5 characters, all in 85 minutes. Whether you grew up on University Avenue in The Bronx, West Philly, or Cedar Falls, you’ll recognize this humorous, heart-breaking, sometimes tough, other times tender, yet ultimately transcendent human journey Vin takes, navigating an age that is redefining the mythos of the American male, and even the meaning of love itself. Blend in the timeless music of the legendary Lou Christie, and you have 3 Egg Creams, The Urban Love Story for the Ages!

VINCE BANDILLE (Vin Morrone). Vince Bandille has graced the stage in iconic roles such as Antonio Salieri in Amadeus to Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman, as well as many others in between. Another more recent, (and favorite) was the role of Stu in Theresa Rebeck’s What We’re Up Against. He’s worked with award-winning filmmaker Jean Pesce in her recent film So You Like the Neighborhood, which was selected for this past year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Other film credits include A New Man, Vinny Vino, Rounding First, and Amongst Friends. Vince is forever grateful for his thirty year long relationship with George Cameron Grant and that George was up to the challenge of working together on 3 Egg Creams just a little over one year ago.

GEORGE CAMERON GRANT (Playwright & Director) Grandson of Lanarkshire-born Olympian George Guthrie Cameron, George is the internationally produced, award-winning author of 14 full length plays, as well as dozens of one acts, one person shows and monologues. George is a member of BMI and the Dramatists Guild. Playwright’s note: Gratitude and love go out to Vince on this, the crowning glory of our 30+ year friendship and creative journey together. Thanks to Johnny Crisafulli (Johnny C, the Pizza Guy!), 3 Egg Creams Business Manager and friend - the fuel in the 3 Egg Creams Express. To Road Manager Peter Howe, thank you for blessing us with your humor, organizational expertise, as well as dealing with the devil in those details. A special thank you to Script Advisor (and Guardian of the Great Feminine) Debbie Saccomanno - simply put, this show would not be the show it has become without your input, insights, refinement, and overall wisdom. Huge thanks to Federico Castelluccio, we would not be at the Cutting Room without your faith in our work. Finally, a personal note about Mr. Lou Christie: Inspiration is a complex thing. Sometimes you experience a piece of work that sticks to you forever. For me, Lightning Strikes was one of those pieces. Like so many others in the NYC area, it came my way via transistor radio, courtesy of WABC’s Cousin Bruce Morrow, and stopped me dead in my tracks. A few years later, I heard Lou’s Rhapsody In The Rain, and that was it! This homage to Tchaikovsky’s Romeo & Juliet took my breath away, so when it came time to write my own Urban Love Story for the Ages, these brilliant pieces, along with Lou’s musical treasure, Christmas In New York, became my emotional cornerstone. They made my work easy, so much so, I felt compelled to weave them throughout the show. But one needs permission for such things. At my request, Lou graciously came to see our first black box presentation of 3 Egg Creams, and on the spot gave permission for us to use his music. THIS is why they call him The Real Deal, and this is why I am forever grateful to Lou Christie.
