New York City
Tammany Hall takes us back 92 years to Election Night, November 2, 1929 for an up-close look at the corruption, scandal, romances and intrigue that brought New York’s most notorious political machine crashing down. While awaiting the results of the night’s big mayoral race, audiences engage with 15 different rooms at one of New York’s historic Jazz Age hotspots. Jimmy Walker, Fiorello LaGuardia, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Legs Diamond, Betty Compton, Marion “Kiki” Roberts are just a few of the names and faces you’ll hear and see. Audiences observe their political machinations in the club room, spy on their trysts in the penthouse suite, peek in at Follies rehearsals on stage, and maybe even knock back a libation or two while conspiring with henchman and government spies in the underground speakeasy.
