Incendiary New Drama The Melting Pot Explores Immigrant America
In Carol Lashof's incendiary world premiere play The Melting Pot, the blossoming relationship between two recent immigrants stalls at the crossroads between the promises of the future and horrors of the past. At the turn of a century that feels startlingly familiar, young lovers David Quixano and Vera Revendal enter the American crucible and are re-formed. Through a rich blend of languages, cultures, humor and music, The Melting Pot weaves text from Israel Zangwill's 1908 smash melodrama of the same name with voices from the early 20th century culture wars, creating an entirely new work that lays bare the wonders and wounds of immigrant America. See the new play at New York's Access Theater - Black Box.
