Bronx 'Guidos' on Stage

A new comedic play that's coming to Manhattan's off-off Broadway circuit in March aims to show a different side of New York City's “guidos.”

“The Guido Monologues: Evolution of the Italian Americans,” opens March 8 at The Producers Club Theater on West 44th Street. The cast and crew, according to a press release, are largely Bronx-born and raised, and the play itself focuses on several characters growing up in the Boogie Down.

But don't expect this to be an episode of “Jersey Shore” on stage, says the producer: the play wants to spread a “more positive message about Italian American culture,” than Snooki does. Watch the clip below for more info.
