The Sopranos is consistently rated as one of the greatest shows in television history - and now an exciting chance to see some of the cast in the flesh is coming to Edinburgh.
Three of the longest running actors in the show are bringing their stories from behind the scenes of the iconic TV series to the UK for the very first time.
What’s the show?
Steve Scirrippa (Bobby Baccala), Vine Pastore (Big Pussy) and Michael Imperiolo (Christopher Moltiasni) will share their stories about their time on The Sopranos.
The event page says, “Steve, Vince and Michael will deliver the stories behind the stories; the incredible bonding of the talented cast as they matured with the show and whereby their characters became so believable that people in the streets still call them by their character names; hear the stories of their friendships that developed with their cast mates including their leader and Capo in both film and real life, James Gandolfini.”
Alongside hearing these incredible tales, there will also be an informative Q&A section at the end of the show.
Where and when is it on?
The show will take place at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh on Tuesday 17 March 2020. The evening will start at 7:45pm.
For those wishing to attend, be aware that the show includes strong language and images of violence.
