Photo Flash: First Look at BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY at Capital Stage
Capital Stage launches its 15th Anniversary Season with the critically acclaimed and multiple award winning play Between Riverside And Crazy by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Judith Moreland, director of An Octoroon , returns to direct local favorite James Wheatley as "Pops" in his Capital Stage main stage debut. The Sacramento Premiere of Between Riverside And Crazy will preview Aug. 28th, 29th, and 30th. A Press Opening will be on Sat. Aug. 31st at 8:00 pm. Performances will run through Sep. 29th. Tickets are available now.
Ex-cop and recent widower Walter "Pops" Washington and his newly paroled son Junior have spent a lifetime living between Riverside Drive and crazy. 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 won't leave him alone. When the struggle to keep one of New York City's last great rent-stabilized apartments collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum, it seems that the old days may be dead and gone. First premiered July 31, 2014 at the Atlantic Theatre Company in New York City.
