The Prince of Providence

  • Trinity Repertory Company 201 Washington Street Providence, RI 02903 (map)

The nation knows him from Crimetown and Operation Plunder Dome, but Providence has a deeper and more complicated relationship with Buddy Cianci. A charismatic visionary who was also a corrupt philanderer, the long-time mayor defied the odds time after time – from his very first election to winning again after being arrested on assault charges. Surrounded by a colorful carousel of characters, Buddy gave Providence many things: some are more visible - businesses, tourism, and relocated rivers - while others are less tangible, but no less real - pride, notoriety, and now, a great story to tell.

Tickets begin at $47 and are available to purchase online at or via phone at 401-351-4242.
