Tightly directed show based on New York’s Triangle Factory Fire of 1911
There is some formidable talent at play in this tightly directed show, telling the story of New York’s Triangle Factory Fire of 1911, in which hundreds perished due to poor working conditions. Although set 100 years ago, the themes resonate today, as the women sing of long hours, little pay and the unforgiving liberties taken with immigrants desperate for work.
