Here’s an offer you can’t refuse: Spend the evening with a group of mobsters, a beautiful girl and a naive playwright for a laugh-filled 90 minutes at the Charlotte Players’ Langdon Playhouse. It’s “Breaking Legs,” which opens on Friday, Jan. 5, for the first of eight performances at the black box theater located inside the Community Theater Center, 1182 Market St., Port Charlotte.
Set in an Italian restaurant owned by a successful mobster and managed by his beautiful, unmarried daughter, things get complicated when her former college professor arrives to ask for financial backing for a play he has written about a murder. The father and his Mafiosi pals are intrigued with producing the play, and the daughter becomes enamored of the playwright, who is delighted to have the family’s support. His bubble is burst when he discovers, through the “accidental” death by train of a lesser thug, that his backers are gangsters.
