The York Theatre Company welcomes the return of its New2NY Series with the New York Premiere of the new musical HOW TO BE AN AMERICAN!, based on Plunkitt of Tammany Hall — A Series of Very Plain Talks on Very Practical Politics, adapted by T. Cat Ford and directed by Bill Castellino (Cagney).
The year is 1905. One week before the next election. New York City. Tammany Hall politician George Washington Plunkitt has gathered a group of new immigrants for the purpose of educating them on the subtleties of the American political system. Come join the party in this Mufti-style staged concert performance, and experience a real-life lesson on honest graft, dishonest graft and the American way that's as relevant now as it was over 100 years ago!
