NEW YORK — Dan Lauria is taking his madcap play about the mob from New Jersey across the river to New York.

“The Wonder Years” star said that “Dinner With the Boys,” which he both wrote and stars in, will begin preview performances April 21 off-Broadway at the Acorn Theatre.

The plot centers on two old-school Mafia guys holed up in a house after botching a job. They cook and swap stories as they await their fate. “It’s really about all the violence we consume,” Lauria said Tuesday.

It will co-star Ray Abruzzo and Richard Zavaglia. Frank Megna will direct.
