“When I was living in Spain in 2012, I wrote a show called Act One, a story of what led me to become an entertainer in the ‘first half’ of my life,” Di Pace said. “After taking the show to New York in 2017, I felt it was time to re-tell the story in 2020 as I definitely have entered the ‘second act’ of my career. I have learned new lessons I want to share, especially the funny, ridiculous and touching ones.”“The stage has an interesting way of mirroring life,” Di Pace added. “For me, the most fun is to share it all through, humor, song and dance.”
