SECOND STAGE THEATER PRESENTS
BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY
A Play by Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed by Austin Pendleton
Broadway Premiere at the Hayes Theater (240 W 44th Street)
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 and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington and his recently paroled son Junior, 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 in this Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis. For Pops and Junior, it seems the Old Days are dead and gone – after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy.
“It’s a dizzying and excited place to be.” hails The New York Times.
