Sentenced to Standup
A one man show chronicling the 5 years Bryan Sobolewski spent robbing jewelry stores with his father and brother and subsequent incarceration.
A Jewelry Heist Ring. That is how the New England press referred to Bryan's crew. The sad fact is, they were also a family: his brother the muscle, his dad the ringleader, and himself a young man who would have robbed the Pope if Dad asked. They started by simply trying to get back money stolen from his father, but that success led them on a five-year crime spree, regional notoriety, and prison terms. Come laugh, cry, ask questions, and most of all, hear and unbelievable story.
