Mystic Pizza

“Mystic Pizza” is a tasty jukebox musical that follows three working-class girls who navigate the complexities of life, love, and family in a small-town pizza joint in Connecticut. The infectious score features mega-hits of the ’80s and ’90s. Hot out of the oven comes delicious musical slices of the era including “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, “Addicted to Love”, “Take My Breath Away”, “The Power of Love”, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, “Never Gonna Give You Up”, and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”. Mouth-watering appetizers and fragrant explosions of popping flavors await. Heavenly vocals and saucy dances give “Mystic Pizza” that extra kick! Service please!

These leading ladies push together and pull apart their loyal bond for one another with a modern opti-“mystic” twist. Panic-stricken Josephina “JoJo” Barboza (Gianna Yanelli) gets cold feet when it comes to the hot idea of marriage to her patiently passionate fiancé, musician Bill Montijo (Jordan Friend). Cheery Katherine “Kat” Arujo (Kyra Kennedy) sets her eyes on building a teetering foundation with her handy tenant Tim Travers (Chris Cardozo). Hot-blooded Daisy Arujo (Krystina Alabado) shares both an emotional and intellectual attraction with seemingly pompous Charles Gordon “Charlie” Windsor, Jr. (Michael Thomas Grant). The fourth musketeer of the sisterhood easily goes to the Mystic Pizza owner and operator, spicy Leona Silvia (Rayanne Gonzales).
