        Obama In Naples

Obama In Naples

In this new play by Italian journalist/poet Claudio angelini, a journalist (Paolo) returns from New York to do an assessment of the reconstruction of Southern Italy since the earthquake. the journalist has been living in the United States for so many years, covering the White House, and he is mistaken for an Obama correspondent. a rumor spreads that the President of the United States wants to visit Naples, bringing his message of peace and hope. When our President coincidentally arrives, miraculously, he is welcomed by the Neapolitans like a new San Gennaro. For a few days Naples becomes the capital of the world and Obama a new patron saint of the city. the host of the evening, Pulcinella, is the "mask of Naples." Like most Italian comedies, it borrows from commedia dell'arte but its humor is the genuine kind that stems from the warmth of the characters themselves. these include the journalist (named Paolo), his old flame and her friend John (an undercover CIa man), a hotel concierge, a Neapolitan "Mother Courage" and her nebbishy nephew, a medical researcher who funded medical research through a Mafia loan shark. He must now either face the music or, with the journalist's help, evade it.
