Can you imagine seeing the name "Melvyn Kaplofkis" up in lights on Broadway? Well, neither could he. So he changed it to "Mel King" and became "The King of Brooklyn." Although Danny DiTorrice has charm, a pleasant singing voice, and a legitimate Brooklyn accent, the play is badly misidentified as a "musical comedy". Relabeling it a "coming-of-age drama" would certainly help.
