About the show

Theater for the New City presents this drama set aboard a transatlantic ocean liner in 1927, where the conflicts and prejudices of the era are played out en route. More…

A transatlantic ocean liner carries both real-life and fictional characters in this new play. Conflicts arise from class and ethnic differences, race relations, and sexual identity. Alla Nazimova, famous star of stage and film; Florence Mills, African-American singer who is returning from a triumphant European tour; Beniamino Gigli, popular Italian tenor looking forward to playing New York’s Carnegie Hall; a young woman from Russia wondering if her husband from an arranged marriage will meet her on arrival; an American crew member who has been living a lie; and a wealthy Southerner traveling with his mistress who still hopes for marriage and respectability. As all of these passengers meet and collide, their differences are made apparent.
