From Off-Broadway

A View From 151st Street incorporates elements of spoken word poetry, takes a look at life and death on the titular street in uptown Manhattan. An undercover cop is undergoing rehabilitation after a shot to the head. As he re-learns words and recovers his memories, a coke-dealer turned wannabe rapper spins into a downward spiral. Cops, rappers, dealers, teachers, hustlers, husbands and wives dwell in the rhythms of rap, raw humor, aphasic staccato and live jazz.

REVIEWS

"Playwright Bob Glaudini presents a story that emanates intense drama and human emotion." - Show Business Weekly

"Set in Harlem, Mr. Glaudini’s modest, quietly moving drama offers a needed corrective to flashier, more widely disseminated depictions of the meaner streets of Manhattan...Mr. Glaudini is too honest an observer to stoop to easy moralizing. But in showing how those who fall into the underworld withdraw from the embrace of friends and family, he finds a potent image to illustrate the dehumanizing effects of drugs." - The New York Times


A View from 151st Street was originally produced by the LAByrinth Theater Company at the Public Theater. It opened on October 18, 2007.
