Italian Bred - a Comedy with Music

"Direct from NEW YORK CITY"
Opens May 29th for 1 month Only!


Candice Guardino, writer, creator, and great-niece of the legendary Harry Guardino, premieres this hilariously heartwarming, one - woman show, with virtual celebrity appearances from Mario Cantone, Steve Schirripa, and many more at the Hudson Theatre Mainstage this May. ITALIAN BRED will open in the Heart of Broadway, NYC this November 2014.

Throughout the 85 minutes, Candice shares hysterical personal stories and sings iconic music, while impersonating various family members like her outspoken "audience favorite", Grandma Fran.

Combined with the nostalgic scent of Sunday dinner,
ITALIAN BRED reminds us of our own unique upbringing and unforgettably funny childhood memories!

From Soprano's Star, Steve Schirripa, Sex in the City's Mario Cantone, and Emmy Award Winner, Leslie Jordan, Vic DiBitetto, Mall Cop: Blart 2 and more

"Candice is incredibly funny and so great to work with - She's a diamond the the rough" - Actor Vincent Pastore currently on broadway in Woody Allen's Bullet Over Broadway and from HBO's The Sopranos

"Guardino is the young, funny, smart new girl in comedy - watch out world!" - Mario Cantone - Host of The View / Comedian / Actor from HBO's Sex in the City

"You know I love me some Italian bread and this gal is the real deal - She's amazing - go see her show ITALIAN BRED!" - Actor Steve Schirripa from

“Guardino is charming, funny and witty, plus she has a voice that can make angels sing” - Comedian / Sirius radio host Rev. Bob Levy

"Italian Bred" plays more like a live version of Woody Allen's "Radio Days" and "Everybody Loves Raymond," and takes the stereotypes about a particular kind of New Yorker and respectfully turns them into something universal.
