A Glance at New York
Saturday, June 19, 2004
Studio 360 excerpts a play that floored audiences in 1848. Benjamin Baker, a young volunteer fireman and theater gadabout, wrote A Glance at New York to capture the tone and swagger of this teeming city. The play depicted Mose the Fireman — a rowdy, irreverent Bowery boy character. The Axis Theater company revived A Glance at New York last year and Studio 360 asked them to perform a scene for us which shows a tender side of Mose. Produced by Jocelyn Gonzales.
