Dick Zigun's New Creepshow - Coney Island Criminals
Coney Island Criminals is Dick Zigun's 2013 Creepshow. It is the "true story" of teenage Al Capone getting his famous scars while working as Bartender/Bouncer at Coney Island's The Harvard Inn, a saloon owned by Brooklyn gangster, Frankie Yale. Not only was The Harvard Inn Capone's first job, it was also Jimmy Durante's first job playing piano and Clara Bow's first job waitressing.
This Creepshow Play is interactive entertainment... the audience gets involved... the front seats are splattered with "blood", an audience member might get hit in the face with spaghetti...might get made into the mob...or might end up shot and killed....see it all in living Splash-A-Rama.
Creepshow at the Freakshow - Coney Island Criminals is a Time Out New York Critics' Pick!
