    ‘A Queen for a Day’ Excavates Crime Family Secrets

    Anita Gates

    May 12, 2015: Tony Soprano had to go to a psychiatrist for us to hear about his personal problems. In “A Queen for a Day,” Michael Ricigliano Jr.’s high-strung one-act drama at the Theater at St. Clement’s, the secrets come pouring out at a clandestine meeting inside an ugly warehouse on a Sunday morning when Nino Cinquimani (David Proval), a made man, would rather be at Mass. What we have here is inherent intensity. Nino’s lawyer, Sanford Weiss (David Deblinger), has persuaded him to meet with a federal prosecutor, Patricia Cole (Portia).

Sadly, the man they really want information on is Nino’s brother, Pasquale.
