Photo Flash: First Look at BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY at the Fountain Theatre
You can't beat City Hall... but you can try.

Guillermo Cienfuegos directs for an Oct. 19 opening, with performances continuing through Dec. 15. Pay-what-you-want previews begin Oct. 16.Former beat cop and recent widower Walter "Pops" Washington has made a home for his newly paroled son, Junior, in his sprawling, rent-controlled New York City apartment on Riverside Drive. But now the NYPD is demanding his signature to close an outstanding lawsuit, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed, and the church is on his back - leaving Pops somewhere between Riverside... and crazy.
