A museum tour goes off-script and off the rails!

It was supposed to be a temporary gig. That’s what Margie told herself when she signed on as a historical reenactor in a New York tenement museum. Then she met Gideon, her acting partner and total opposite.

Together, they must take on the roles of Josephine and Julian, a newly married immigrant couple arriving to New York’s Lower East Side, circa 1890. As museum guests move through the 19th century tenement, lines between Margie and Gideon blur. Their dizzying double lives culminate in the ultimate question—can love survive the unexpected?

Experience the 1890s to now, no tickets required!

Free and open to the public. First-come, first-seated.

Directed by Jordan Malone and produced by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
