“These Streets” is a new play with original music, including musical performances.
It’s 1961 at the height of the folk music scene in Greenwich Village. Eve Wilson moves to New York City with dreams of becoming a singer/songwriter. She stumbles upon the local open mic scene, where she meets other aspiring artists Ben Phillips, a talented
singer and bar tender struggling with stage fright, and Nancy Tate a writer who falls for Ben, proving to perhaps be the challenge he needs. She also meets folk singer Dennis McKinley. When she meets Dennis sparks fly until his new found career success creates tensions between them. Dennis then must rediscover who he is and what it is that matters to him most.

"A creative original piece with a little bit of everything. Drama, romance, comedy and well arranged music. The cast does a great job showing character transformation from beginning to end. The writing is witty and cute. The music and vocals are fabulous and sincere. Impressive direction and flowing movement. A great story that will not disappoint."

""These Streets" will transport you back to a bit of American musical history during the New York, Greenwich Village scene of the early 1960s. You will find yourself sitting in an open mic pub as part of the audience giving the play a special interactive feel. The music is a delightful highlight of "These Streets", each song adding to the enjoyment of the play and the development of the individual characters. The storyline will keep you entertained and is well acted by all. "These Streets" is a great original play that you need to both see and hear!"

"While the struggle for success and artistic integrity is not a new topic for any medium, there is always room to rehash it for contemporary audiences. The play teeters between memorable friends you leave away with, but also forgettable performances, creating an execution that feels hampered. High praise for the actors playing Ben, Nancy, and the bar owner as they quickly suck you into the brisk emotional rollercoaster of these performers, but I desired more belivability and character definition from Eva and Dennis given their few moments throughout the play. With some more emphasis on nailing the emotional arcs and moments for those characters, this play could be elevated to something akin to watching a solid Gilmore Girls season put succinctly."
