WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Following Brave New World Repertory Theatre's oversold staged reading of this dramatic vaudeville set during the Great Depression, a full production of The American Clock comes to the Brooklyn Lyceum. Set primarily in Brooklyn, but moving throughout the United States, The American Clock is a panoramic patchwork about the Great Depression told in a medley of dramatic scenes and songs of the era, including Mood Indigo, Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries and On The Sunny Side of the Street. Alternately upbeat and bittersweet, Arthur Miller's ode to the optimism and naivete of the American spirit warns that the clock is ticking on the American Dream. The 53 characters -- ranging from a middle-class Brooklyn family to train-riding hobos and high- riding Wall Street brokers brought low - are portrayed by 20 actors and musicians who tell the poignant story of an economic crisis Americans believed could never again happen.
