About This Show

From the Director, Charlotte Moore: “In this time of Covid, I was sure it would be appropriate to re-write my original Director’s Note. But upon re-reading the original so many things are exactly the same, that I have changed my mind. There is still great poverty and hunger, and the heartbreak of lost love never changes. Add to that a worldwide pandemic and a masked society, and Boucicault’s 19th-century world seems to fit right into our 21st with its darkness and restrictions. But, as always, I love the end of our story. It’s filled with hope and the victory of the power of good. One day soon we will surely be headed in that light-filled direction.”

Based on Dion Boucicault’s play of the same name and with adaptation, songs, and direction by Charlotte Moore, The Streets of New York was first staged at Irish Rep in 2002, when it was nominated for two Drama League Awards. The production also ran at the Westport Country Playhouse in 2003.
