Between Riverside and Crazy

A New York theatre stalwart gets the spotlight he so richly deserves – a second time

Eight seasons earlier, Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Between Riverside and Crazy took New York City and the Pulitzer committee by storm when it played at the Atlantic Theatre Company. At a quick glance, it’s the story of Walter “Pops” Washington (Stephen McKinley Henderson) , a recently widowed ex-cop who lives in a spacious rent-controlled apartment on Riverside Drive with his son, Junior (Common, making a memorable Broadway debut).

See it for Henderson, getting the role of a lifetime and giving a performance that should win all the awards.
