Chalk & Saltwater: The Ladder Project
This is the story of the most costly and most stubborn failure in the history of the New York Stage - The play called The Ladder.
In 1926 Edgar B. Davis used his vast oil fortune to become the sole producer of The Ladder. During its' two year run the play acquired some of the most scathing reviews that the New York stage has ever seen. The Ladder became known as "the longest running failure in American theatre history."
Through historical biographies, passages from unreleased memoirs, and glimpses into 40 boxes of decaying 100-year-old documents, our team of writer/performers investigate this wildly expensive disappointment to bring you Chalk and Saltwater: The Ladder Project - and ask, is their value to be found in failure?
September 15 - October 22, Thu/Fri/Sat at 8pm. Tickets are $15, $10 for students and seniors with ID
