FROM RAGS TO RICHES NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: September 23, 2011
Did He Like It?*
From Rags to Riches, by "The Master of Melodrama" Charles A. Taylor, premiered in New York in 1903. From the Bowery to Broadway, from Opium Den to Opera, the play runs rampant after a nefarious plot to murder an old man, kidnap a young girl, and cheat the righteous of their just desserts. The OBIE Award-winning Metropolitan Playhouse is back in high form for the fall!
Melodrama Returns, Flaunting Its Chaos and Clichés
*By KEN JAWOROWSKI
Published: September 26, 2011
"According to the Metropolitan Playhouse “From Rags to Riches” has not been revived in New York for more than 100 years. After seeing the play you’ll wonder if the last troupe to stage it has yet recovered from the experience. A sprawling tale assembled from dozens of styles, genres and plots, the show is by turns slapdash, bewildering, rousing and ridiculous. It’s also more appealing than it has any right to be."
