About the Show
Blood Type: RAGU is a hilarious and heartfelt one-man play exploring a first-generation immigrant child’s delicate dance between culture, identity, and forgiveness. Writer/Performer Frank Ingrasciotta gives a tour-de-force portrayal of over 20 characters who live, love and laugh, in this fast-paced journey that is not just a comedy, not just a drama — It’s family — and we all have one! The show delighted audiences Off-Broadway at the Actors’ Playhouse in NYC receiving a glowing reviews. Since its Off-Broadway opening, Blood Type: RAGU has continued to play over 1,000 performances at prestigious venues nationally and internationally. It is the recipient of the Westchester Council Arts Award for Outstanding Artist, a Sons of Italy Recognition Award, and the winner of two United Solo Awards for Best Comic Actor and Best Comedic Script. The show was also invited to perform for Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislators where it received honors on the house floor of the New York State Capital. Blood Type: RAGU is chronicled and analyzed in Prof. Fred Gardaphe’s book, From Wiseguys to Wisemen: The Gangster and Italian-American Masculinities.
