In 1999, a guilt-ridden gangster walked into a psychiatrist’s office. What followed, over the course of eight years, six legendary series and 86 episodes was a cult TV revolution.
The Sopranos is universally hailed as the most groundbreaking TV series of all time. Recently ranked by Rolling Stone as “the greatest TV show of all time” the show remains a prominent, powerful cultural force to this day.
2020 marks two decades of the show airing on our screens, and to celebrate, three of The Sopranos’ biggest characters are coming to Manchester.
For the very first time in the UK, Steven Schirripa (Bobby ‘Bacala’), Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti) and Vincent Pastore (‘Big Pussy’ Bonpensiero) will take to the road for a series of ‘in conversation’ events.
The legendary trio will take fans behind the scenes of the lauded gangster drama – the stories, the dramas, the laughs – not to mention the countless theories about the show’s controversial finale.
A family on-set and off, they’ll also dive into the relationships formed during the show’s eight-year run, and the impact that their on-screen capo, James Gandolfini, had on their careers and lives.
There will also be an opportunity to join the trio backstage at the show with meet and greet packages available.
David Chase’s uncompromising vision of gangland New Jersey was so successful and so culturally significant that it won a coveted 21 Primetime Emmy Awards and five Golden Globe Awards.
Honestly, it’s hard to believe it’s been twenty years since the world was introduced to Tony Soprano and his wild world of wise guys. But here we are.
They come to Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on 18th May 2020 and tickets go on sale Friday 13th September.
