At Demens Landing Park
April 12 - May 14, 2023
Set in the melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future and and the power of the human spirit to overcome.
