In 1920’s prohibition New York, two rival gangs are fighting over the control of all things illegal. Fat Sam’s empire is being destroyed by Dandy Dan’s new weapon: a splurge machine gun.
Fat Sam counts on Bugsy Malone, a half-Irish, half-Italian wannabe boxer turned boxer promoter, to help him overturn his fate. Although Bugsy is very popular with the ladies (especially Tallulah, Fat Sam’s girlfriend and star of his speakeasy “Grand Slam”), he falls for Blousey Brown, an aspiring singer and actress. Inspired by real events, this musical gangster comedy show is full of action, songs and custard pies.
