WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Axis Company presents the first off-Broadway revival of Benjamin A. Baker's 1848 melodrama A Glance at New York. Set during a particularly dangerous and smarmy period in New York City history, the play is an unmitigated conglomeration of vulgarity and illiteracy following a burly firefighter named Big Mose. Known as the toughest man in the nation's toughest city, Mose spends much of his time beating whomever is in his path before rushing off to rescue a screaming innocent from a burning tenement. There are no performances June 28 or July 4.
