About Between Riverside and Crazy

Running time: 2 hours, plus one 15‑minute intermission
"Highest Rating! Darkly funny! Rich . . . poetic . . . a very smart, timely and deeply humane play."
San Francisco Chronicle
Read the rave review from the San Francisco Chronicle

“Flat-out hysterical! Tender . . . richly nuanced . . . a wild ride.” 
Bay Area News Group
“This cast is, to put it mildly, beyond belief! It deals head on with powerful emotion . . . and [a] whole lot of humor!”

“Stephen Adley Guirgis’ look at police violence, race relations, dysfunctional families, and how the bureaucratic steamroller will mow down a man’s integrity. It’s remarkably pithy for tackling so many subjects at once . . . tightly directed—and it’s frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious.” 
SF Weekly
“★ ★ ★ ★! A rich new play . . . it is a dizzying and exciting place to be!” —New York Times
“This is the kind of rich, dynamic theater you almost never see anymore—fresh, savage and original. Like a stick of dynamite, it shines a laser light on the shadowy aspects of being a black cop, fighting the system, and never giving up or giving in.  New York Observer
“Tender . . . gritty . . . shocking” —New York Daily News
In this outrageous new dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis (The Motherf*cker with the HatJesus Hopped the A Train), ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington is desperately trying to hold on to his prime piece of real estate—one of the last great rent-stabilized apartments in New York City—while simultaneously battling his inner demons. His landlord wants him and his newly paroled son out; his cop friends are begging him to back down from a lawsuit against City Hall; the local liquor store has closed; and a beautiful, mysterious Santeria practitioner promises salvation in the midst of all the chaos. A hilarious and timely story that tackles gentrification, recovery, faith, sketchy houseguests, and the saving grace of family, Between Riverside and Crazy is “a genuine original that deserves to be seen by anyone hungry for a smart, exuberantly funny urban dramedy” (Newsday).
