Description: The Paramount Theatre in Asbury brings

Candice Guardino’s Italian Bred back to the East Coast!

Italian Bred, the hilarious and heartwarming one woman show in Asbury Park summer 2017. Written by and starring Candice Guardino, Italian Bred is based on true life events and told through the eyes of a little girl growing up Italian on Staten Island. Having written down everything her loving and outspoken grandmother ever uttered, Candice slips in and out of multiple characters while sharing the stage with virtual cameos of Emmy winner Leslie Jordan ("Will and Grace"), Mario Cantone ("Sex & the City"), Steve Schirripa ("The Sopranos"), and Vic DiBitetto ("Mall Cop 2.")

Italian Bred will visit New Jersey this summer after successful runs in NYC, LA, & Chicago where it received rave reviews and played to sold-out crowds. Italian Bred will remind audiences of their own unique upbringing and unforgettably humorous childhood memories.

Candice Guardino was born in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, was raised on Staten Island, and now splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City. Candice made a name for herself on the New York theatre scene with her outrageously revealing one-woman show, "S.O.S." which ran at Stage 72 and The Laurie Beechman. Candice has also written several sitcoms, stage plays, screenplays, and shorts. Candice has studied with UCB, Second City, The Pit Improv and has a BA in Theatre.
