Between Riverside and Crazy

Between Riverside and Crazy

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play Between Riverside and Crazy will receive its Broadway premiere at the Hayes Theater in fall 2022. 

Guirgis' drama follows Walter "Pops Washington" and his recently paroled son Junior. Nobody wants them anymore, and 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 a 2015 review of Between Riverside and Crazy for New York Theatre Guide, "Guirgis is writing about lives that don’t “fit” the smooth path that we like to see onstage – the ones who make us think we should be like them. And he raises blunt issues about race that we don’t see enough of in our art. Hats off to that."

Casting for Between Riverside and Crazy is to be announced. 

 

About Between Riverside and Crazy:

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.
