3 EGG CREAMS returns to The Cutting Room stage, after its wildly
successful Off-Broadway Premiere on Valentine’s Day, which capped off
a year of sold out performances throughout the Metropolitan area.
Garnering an ever-growing family of friends, fans, and followers
wherever it travels, the play described as “A Bronx Tale meets It’s A
Wonderful Life” stars Vince Bandille as Vin Morrone, depicting one
man’s lessons in life, loss & 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 2018'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 our
Executive Producer Ross Capuzzo for your guidance, wisdom and faith in
our dream. To promoter Johnny Crisafulli (Johnny C, the Pizza Guy!) -
another true believer in the 3 Egg Creams message - thanks for your
boundless enthusiasm and friendship. To Stage and Tour Manager Peter
Howe, thanks for your organizational expertise, dealing with the devil
in the details, your devilish humor, your valuable friendship, and
your amazing wife Diane, who quickly became an invaluable member of
our 3 Egg Creams family. Additional mountains of
gratitude go out to our PR guru Joe Trentacosta and to Bailey Kasdon,
our Wizard of Tech. A very, very, special thank you to Script Advisor,
Sound Designer, Guardian of the show’s Great Feminine and my devoted
life partner, 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
have been 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 year later, Lou’s Rhapsody In The Rain reached my ears, 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 cornerstones. They made my work easy,
so much so, I felt compelled to weave them throughout the show. But
one needs permission for these things, after my written request for
such, Lou graciously attended our very first presentation of 3 Egg
Creams where, immediately following that initial performance, he gave
permission to use his timeless music in our play. As the play evolved,
he even graciously recorded a lovely piece of a cappella exclusively
for the show. THIS is why they call him The Real Deal, and this is why
I am forever grateful to Lou Christie.”
