Photo Flash: First Look - Hudson Guild Theatre's A TIME TRAVELER'S TRIP TO NIAGRA

May 5
1:48 PM 2014

America-in-Play presents the premiere of A Time-Traveler's Trip to Niagra, Following the Bold Adventures and Strange Detours of an Unlikely Group of Travelers Across Time and America. Running through May 18 at the Hudson Guild Theatre (441 West 26th Street), this unique comedy interweaves two journeys up the Hudson River: one by bus in 2014 and one by steamboat in 1828. From upper class Brits taking a tour of the Early Republic to a modern brother and sister taking a bus ride upstate to trace their roots, the two trips converge at the iconic and spectacular Niagara Falls and aim to investigate the relationship between the American landscape and identity while exploring ties between past and future. A unique 'Dime Museum' exploring Americana and the play will be open 30 minutes before each performance. Check out a first look below!

Conceived, directed and dramaturged by Lynn M. Thomson, the play has been collaboratively written by two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Willy Holtzman (also winner of the Peabody Award, the Humanitas Prize and the Writers Guild Award for Edge of America), Deborah Brevoort (winner of the Frederick Loewe Award, Darren Canady (winner of the Lorraine Hansberry Playwriting Award & the Theodore Ward Prize for African-American Playwrights), Georgia James & Kalle Macrides and is based off of the 1828 play A Trip to Niagra; or Travellers in America by William Dunlap (once lauded as the father of American Drama).

The cast includes Max Arnaud, Crystal Arnette (Mary-Kate Olsen Is In Love at The Flea; member of The Flea's resident acting company the Bats), Christine Farrell, Andrew Keltz (the Drama Desk nominated production of The Golden Land with the National Yiddish Theatre) & John-Andrew Morrison (The Tooth of Crime at La MaMa).

A Time-Traveler's Trip to Niagra continues through May 18 at the Hudson Guild Theatre (441 West 26th Street) with performances Tues.-Sat. at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased online at www.BrownPaperTickets.com or by phone at 800-838-3006.
