Audiences who were riveted by 4th Wall's sold-out, award-winning production of JESUS HOPPED THE 'A' TRAIN will find much to love in Guirgis's more recent, Pulitzer Prize-winning play. 4th Wall is delighted to remount its critically-acclaimed production which the Houston Press described as "a glorious time at the theater - explosive, funny, gritty, true." This new American classic follows a retired NYC cop fighting down forces much larger than himself from within a collapsing, rent-controlled apartment. Swirling around him are a host of larger-than-life characters sure to captivate audiences. This production will reintroduce the stellar original cast and design team directed by four-time Emmy winner Bill Pruitt.

"BETWEEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY dazzles at 4th Wall Theatre. ...an amazing script, a stellar cast, and a show produced with technical prowess." Broadway World
