Meet Jersey native, John Ciccolini, who left for the west coast and became an actor, singer, and comedian. Years later, with his brother Michael, this NJ native wrote a one-man musical comedy incorporating classic music of another NJ native – Frank Sinatra. In a funny and poignant story, John takes us back to his Jersey childhood and his memories of the magical romance of his parent's marriage. John watches his dad romance his mom while singing Sinatra songs to her and dancing her around the kitchen, but that romance disappeared as life's disappointments mounted. When the ghost of Ol’ Blue Eyes enters his life and shares his ring-a-ding-Rat Pack rules of romance and seduction, John goes on a journey of awkward and hilarious self-discovery, confronting his own insecurities, facing the reality of his parents’ marriage, and finally getting the girl on his own terms. The play follows John in his search for the romance that he hears about in all of those legendary Sinatra songs. Click here to get a sample of John at work channeling Sinatra.
If John’s face is familiar to you, that's no surprise; he’s appeared on numerous TV shows such as ER,Veronica Mars, N.Y.P.D. Blue, Becker, Boston Public, Everybody Hates Chris, Dirty Sexy Money, and so many more. He’s also done extensive work in the theater in plays such as The Lion in Winter and Death of a Salesman.
John recently performed Frank Sinatra Screwed Up My Life, in NJ and is expected to bring it soon to Atlantic City. And Frank would really dig that, baby!
