Stepping Out

Hanging out with the 'Italian Chicks'

Dynamic ensemble shares comic wit and wisdom at Landmark on Main Street on Friday


On Stage

The Italian Chicks

Get ready to laugh with “The Italian Chicks,” when these four dynamic women arrive at Landmark on Main Street’s Jeanne Rimsky Theater, with their comedy revue. Maryann Maisano, Mary Dimino, Regina DeCicco, and Gina Scarda make up this eclectic group of multi-talented women who draw on the foibles of their Italian-American traditions in their two-hour show – a blend of comedy, acting and song. Maisano, the show’s producer and headliner, describes their performance “as part meatball, part cannoli – a passionate comedy with a little drama.” It’s a celebration of food, family and culture. You don’t have to be Italian to enjoy this show; their stories about family traditions are something everyone can relate to.

Friday, June 28, 8:30 p.m. $40. Landmark on Main Street’s Jeanne Rimsky Theater, 232 Main St., Port Washington. For tickets and information, visit
