The Last Street Play

Twentieth Anniversary Revival

Gordon Skinner and Chad Coleman

OFF STAGE, voices sing in hearty, foot‐stomping unison, “We’re the Mighty Gents!”, a martial air of memory to the roughest, meanest gang in Newark. On stage, Frankie, the leader of the Gents, now descended into mediocrity, takes a drink and confides in us. He talks about his failed dreams, thwarted pride and rising sense of desperation. – from Mel Gussow’s NY Times review of the 1977 production

Presented as part of the 1996-97 Season

Play opened April 13, 1997 at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center
