Tickets for BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY Live Simulcast Viewings on Sale Tomorrow

Simulcast tickets are available for the final two weeks of the show’s run, January 31 – February 12, 2023, allowing theater fans to witness the production from home.

Tickets will go on sale for Second Stage Theater's simulcast performances of its Broadway production of Stephen Adly Guirgis' play, Between Riverside and Crazy, directed by Austin Pendleton on Friday, November 11 at 12pm EST.

Simulcast tickets are available for the final two weeks of the show's run, January 31 - February 12, 2023, allowing theater fans who aren't able to attend in person the opportunity to witness a live Broadway performance from home.

The groundbreaking program was launched last season with Second Stage's production of Lynn Nottage's Tony-nominated play, Clyde's. The pilot program was a resounding success, with simulcasts being viewed in 49 states as well as Washington, D.C. Eleven of the fourteen simulcast performances sold out, even after adding additional inventory, and 78% of simulcast audience members were from outside New York City.

The simulcasts will once again be captured by five to seven cameras and are edited live as the performance happens. All cameras are operated remotely and situated discreetly throughout the Hayes Theater to avoid disrupting the audience in attendance. Live stream services provided by The League of Live Stream Theater, Inc.

BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY will feature Victor Almanzar (Halfway Bitches Go Straight To Heaven), Elizabeth Canavan (Pipeline, Last Days of Judas Iscariot), ROSAL COLÓN (A Free Man of Color, The Motherf***er with the Hat), LIZA COLÓN-ZAYAS (FX's The Bear, 2ST's Water By the Spoonful), Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winner COMMON (Selma), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Tony Award nominee for Fences, 2ST's Jitney), and Michael Rispoli (The Offer, The Deuce).

BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY will begin previews Wednesday, November 30 and will officially open on Monday, December 19, 2022 at Second Stage's Hayes Theater (240 West 44th Street).

Second Stage originally presented Between Riverside and Crazy at its off-Broadway home, the Tony Kiser Theater, in February 2015.

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 (Henderson) and his recently paroled son Junior (Common), 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 this Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis. For Pops and Junior, it seems the Old Days are dead and gone - after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy.

The creative team for Between Riverside and Crazy includes scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Alexis Forte, lighting design by Keith Parham, and sound design/original music by Ryan Rumery. Casting is by Telsey + Company.

Subscriptions and single tickets for Between Riverside and Crazy are currently available by phone and online. A limited number of $30 tickets will be available to people aged 30 and under with valid ID. The Hayes box office will be open for Between Riverside and Crazy beginning November 15th.
