Streets of Old New York - A Sing-Along Musical Melodrama

5 Male, 3 Female

Edward Crosby Wells Price: $7.99

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!

Especially ...

Gideon Bloodgood, a corrupt banker in old New York

And his partner in crime, Badger

Together they cook the books and rob the innocent

Bloodgood's daughter, Alida, is no angel either as she plots to marry into Society, even at the cost of a couple of broken hearts

Murder, suicide, intrigue and treachery of every kind abound in this comedy of manners and morals

Freely adapted from the 1857 drama The Poor of New York by Dion Boucicault which was in turn an adaptation of Eugène Nus and Édouard Brisebarre's Les Pauvres de Paris (Paris, 1856)

The songs included in this text are in public domain and therefore neither royalties nor permission are needed to perform them in the sing-along portions
