Through a shared twist of fate with my younger sister, I am forced to question not only my identity but also my upbrining. This journey reveals that there is more to La Famiglia than The Sopranos, cannoli and guns. A one woman show sauteed with garlic and caramelized with humor!



" Baratta is a master at conjuring up the many family members who had a hand in her coming of age, all of them hell-bent on teaching her the rules of Italian Catholic propriety....well-acted, well-staged, and engaging....palpable - and affecting.  An entertaining and at times moving chronicle, Vignettes reminds us that barriers to assimilation come from both within and without." - Theasy


“Stunning in its accuracy and honesty….this is an excellent work by a writer/performer who has an abundance of theater skills.  Her performance is charged with energy and passion.  This is a universal coming-of-age story that fits just about every culture in the great melting pot, America.”  4 ½ stars  - Republican-American





“Actress Maria Baratta prides herself on being real and raw, and along the way she is also filled with personality and promise…..willing to show herself, Italian-American roots and all, down to her soul, which she bares to the audience openly and honestly…..brought to life through Baratta’s skills as an impersonator, so true to life that you can see each member of the family interacting with her like a well spiced spaghetti sauce to her narrative meat balls.” – CT Critics


“When the lovely Maria Baratta began her monologue, we knew we were in for a great show…..an excellent actress who switched effortlessly from character to character and back to herself….the actress covered a lot of topics during the two acts; nothing was taboo.  There was an effective mix of comedy and tragedy and it was much more than what I expected.” – Patch
