The World Premiere of America’s First Play: Androboros (Villain of the State)
Written by Governor Robert Hunter (1714) and Adapted by S.M. Dale (2017)

7:00pm performances on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in October

Before Hamilton, before Washington, before even much of Manhattan existed, there was Androboros! Mixing Elizabethan language with the commedia del arte of its day, this new adaptation will feature over a dozen original songs played live with a dancing, 10-member cast in an intimate setting. Based on a true incident that scandalized the young New York colony, the play is a great history lesson that is as funny and entertaining today as it was in 1714.
