Between Riverside and Crazy

by STEPHEN ADLY GUIRGIS

Directed by AUSTIN PENDLETON

Linda Gross Theater

July 10 – August 23, 2014


A world premiere from the wildly original author of Broadway’s The Motherf*cker with the Hat, Jesus Hopped the A Train, and The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.

More Info

City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the Landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed — and the Church won’t leave him alone. For ex-cop & recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington and his recently paroled son Junior, when the struggle to hold on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum, it seems the Old Days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living between Riverside and Crazy.

Reviews

New York Times Critics' Pick logo

 

“A rich new play deliciously mounted! Mr. Guirgis has a splendid ear in blurring lines between the sacred and profane and it is a dizzying and exciting place to be! Directed by Austin Pendleton with an authoritative finesse and features a superb cast led by Stephen McKinley Henderson in an impeccably measured performance.”
