The Assembly's THAT POOR DREAM Opens at The Tank TonightThe Assembly's THAT POOR DREAM Opens at The Tank Tonight
by BWW News Desk - Jan 9, 2015

The Tank, a non-profit arts presenter located in the heart of midtown, is proud to present The Assembly's That Poor Dream, a new play set on a train traveling from New York City to Fairfield, CT.
