Theater for the New City Presents
Crossing Paths In Washington Square
Thursday, January 17, 2013 through Sunday, February 03, 2013

As the wrecking ball and urban development exchange the physical legacy of our city for the future, Crossing Paths in Washington Square captures Greenwich Village as it was in 1913--racially, economically and culturally diverse.

Length: 2 hrs 00 mins
Intermission: Yes
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Characters in the play represent the wealthy “patricians” of the Washington Square North townhouses; the Italian working class residents of Washington Square West; the artists and writers of the Washington Square South studios and rooming houses; the gays and lesbians beginning to build a community in Greenwich Village; the Jewish immigrants to the east of Washington Square who were still affected by the Triangle Factory fire of 1911, that happened nearby and killed so many of their relatives and neighbors; and the remnants of the African American community, most of whom had already relocated uptown to Harlem. Washington Square Park was where the disparate Village residents and visitors converged, sharing the greenery and fountain, especially during long hot summers.
