About the show

Set within a tenement that is about to be torn down, this production for children 7 and up uses masks, toy theater, and puppets to imagine the proud and perilous histories of the building's immigrant occupants. More…

Like prehistoric sediment, the walls of a building often contain traces and impressions of lives once lived. Liz Parker and Rachel Sullivan created this production after a visit to the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side, where they learned of the old apartments’ many layers of wallpaper, each applied by an immigrant family.

See it if you have kids or nieces/nephews who'd enjoy being entertained (while being educated). DO your prep-work: inform your tribe what it's about.

Don't see it if you don't want to sit around kids asking questions during the show, or parental-units lighting-up cells each time the house-lights dimmed.

Also Great show, especially for History buffs.... Read more Read less
