Hard Times: An American Musical

Thursday, September 13th, 2012 to Sunday, September 30th, 2012

Hard Times is a soulful musical of clashing Irish and Afro- American cultures, written by Larry Kirwan of Black 47. Through a re-imagining of Stephen Foster’s songs, Kirwan conjures the creation of tap dance and explores the troubled life of the “father of American Music” against the backdrop of New York City’s Civil War draft riots.
