Get ready to sing and have a barrel of fun in this 1890s style sing-along
musical. Cheer the good guys and hiss the villains ...
Gideon Bloodgood, a corrupt banker in old New York, together with his partner in crime, Badger, cook the books and rob the innocent
Bloodgood’s daughter, Alida, is no angel herself as she plots to marry into Society, even at the cost of a couple of broken hearts
Murder, suicide, intigue and treachery of every kind abound in this play of manners and morals
Freely adapted from the 1857 drama The Poor of New York by Dion Boucicault. The Poor of New York (produced subsequently under many titles, including The Poor of Liverpool and The Poor of London) was first staged in New York City, and subsequently in London (1857), and Liverpool (1864)
It was actually an adaptation of Eugène Nus and Édouard Brisebarre’s Les Pauvres de Paris (Paris, 1856)

” ... an enjoyable evening of theatre which

values our country used to uphold ...
