In the intimate setting of a one-man stage play, former mobster Salvatore Polisi will reveal episodes of his dangerous life in the streets of New York in At the Sinatra Club on Sunday, July 22 at 2 p.m. at the Clark County Library.
Polisi spent over fifteen years with organized crime families and was an associate of mafia kingpin John Gotti. When he decided to turn away from crime and enter the Federal Witness Protection, he struggled with his civilian identity, and ultimately found redemption and a renewed purpose in life through his writing.
The performance follows his true life adventures as a professional criminal, mobster and father. His recollections involve some of the most infamous mobsters in New York during the ’70s and early ’80s, ranging from John Gotti and attorney Roy Cohn, to Tommy DeSimone, Henry Hill and Jimmy Burke (portrayed by Joe Pesci, Ray Liotta and Robert DeNiro, respectively, in the film Goodfellas).
This play is free but is intended for mature audiences due to adult theme and language, and includes multimedia visuals and audience Q&A. DVDs and merchandise will be available for purchase and signing after the program. For more information, please call 507-3459.
