The Boss OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS

    Theater: Metropolitan Playhouse / 220 East Fourth Street, New York, NY, 10009

    Synopsis: 

    In 1911, a bare-knuckles robber-baron has taken over the grain industry in a Great Lakes city, squeezing out all competition, crushing his workers, and turning a once proud city into his own fiefdom. A youthful idealist organizes a strike to fight back, and the Boss threatens to bankrupt the entire town. Perhaps the only real hope lies in the unlikeliest place: the heart of a ruthless man who has also fallen in love. One-half melodrama, one-half social protest, The Boss is a confrontation of corporate power, individual generosity, community values, and even a newly globalizing economy--all from 100 years ago.
