Between Riverside and Crazy, by Stephen Adly Guirgis won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. Walter “Pops” Washington is a retired New York City policeman. His wife has died, and his son, “Junior,” has just been released from jail. They live in a rent-controlled apartment on Riverside Drive in New York City. Junior’s girlfriend, Lulu, and Oswaldo, a recovering addict, also spend time at the apartment. Walter has been pursuing a discrimination suit against the Police Department, because he was accidentally shot by another police officer.
The Los Angeles Times stated: “Movingly acted…loud and bruising on the outside, sorrowful and soulful on the inside….The grittiness of playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis’ street-smart comedies has sometimes made it difficult to see the religious feeling coursing through his body of work…[T]hrough these brazen, helpless, semi-sympathetic sinners he has been conducting the most searching inquiry on the American stage into the mysteries and paradoxes of spiritual faith.”
The Fountain Theatre has a café that opens one hour before the show that serves beverages and snacks, with comfortable seating.
Cost: $22 members, $32 non-members
