Before Hamilton and Washington, there was Androboros—the villain who tried to end NYC's beginning and failed to make America great. This musical adaptation of America's first play is a comic tale of political gridlock. More…
Mixing Elizabethan language with the commedia del arte of its day, 'Androboros' will feature over a dozen original songs played live with a dancing, 10-member cast in an intimate setting.
