Frank Rizzo may soon walk again. And talk again.
Philadelphia's Theatre Exile has inked a deal to bring the best-selling biography of Philadelphia's larger-than-life mayor to the stage.
Joe Canuso, artistic director of Theatre Exile, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (bit.ly/YCFbHC) it's still in the very early stages.
The play will be an adaptation of Sal Paolantonio's 1994 book, "Rizzo: The Last Big Man in Big City America."
Paolantonio is a former Inquirer politics reporter who now covers the NFL for ESPN.
