Description

Directed by Craig Johnson

Ambitious and groundbreaking for its time, Street Scene is strikingly relevant more than 80 years after its premiere. Street Scene explores the intertwined lives of the inhabitants of a New York City tenement and the adjacent neighborhood street in the late 1920s. Surprisingly intimate, natural and humorous, Street Scene reminds audiences of the nobility, passions and human failings common to all. By placing in stark relief the disparities between rich and poor, the flawed attitudes toward newcomers, the drive to create a better life, and the simple yearning for kindness and love, the play prompts viewers to recognize the same stories taking place today just down their own block.
