Grey Street, billed as a "RockOPERical," is a unique, psychedelic musical and rock opera. This story within a story recounts the tale of William Grey, a Princeton Greek mythology professor whose wife is pushing him to become tenured, though he'd rather be an author. Torn between his responsibilities and his passions, and between his wife and his muse, a musical extravaganza ensues as Professor Grey embarks on a philosophical journey during which he ponders the meaning of money and the choices we make in life.

“Wit, humor and fantasy. Hilarious.” —Clive Barnes, New York Times
By Israel Horovitz

Ever wait in line?
What are you waiting for?
Who are these other people?
Are they your friends? Are they your enemies?
Is someone trying to cheat you? Seduce you? Cut ahead?
Who can you trust?
Line, Israel Horovitz’s classic, existential, dark comedy explores these questions in this biting, absurdist allegory, that perfectly satirizes the now-timeless theme of America’s constant desire and struggle to be in first place.
Line was Horovitz’s first play produced. Translated into over 35 languages, Line has become a landmark of New York’s theater scene as NYC’s longest-running play … 37 years at our theatre!
Stage and screen legends Chazz Palminteri, Richard Dreyfuss, and John Cazale all stood in Line during the show’s historic run. Come and experience this Greenwich Village classic, as relevant now as when it opened at our theatre in 1974.
