    One Sheridan Square
    New York, NY 10014

    Directed by Randy Sharp, Music and Lyrics by Randy Sharp & Paul Carbonara. Featuring Spencer Aste, Shira Averbuch, Mara Beier, Dewey Caddell, George Demas, Emily Kratter, Lynn Mancinelli, Stephanie Regina and Jared Young.

    Solitary Light tells a story through the eyes of those who witnessed New York's Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire that resulted in the death of 146 people in 1911. Using historical documents and newspaper articles, the musical depicts the lives of Frank and Louise, two young politically minded immigrant workers in love, as they navigate the financially strapped owners and the incredibly rich families of 1911 New York who had little concept of the horrors of the working class experience. The streets of lower Manhattan in the early 20th century and the fascinating stories that happened there are carefully recreated in a manner that will bring this turning point in history to life on stage. How did a disaster like this happen? How is it possible that it still occurs in factories all over the world?

    Adults – Regular $40
    Seniors/Students $30

    The marble-faced structure known as the Hart-Cluett House is one of the finest intact houses of the late Federal period in America. Constructed as a gift for his only child, Betsey Howard Hart, and her husband, Richard P. Hart, by New York merchant and banker William Howard, the house represents the best in design and craftsmanship of the period. The house was architecturally sophisticated, exhibiting many stylistic details associated with homes of the same period in New York City. The house was technologically advanced, as well, as evidenced by its heating and plumbing systems. http://www.rchsonline.org 518-272-7232
