About Show: 
The Golden Year

The Golden Year is 24-Carat!

Every once in a while, an off-off-Broadway limited-run showcase production jumps up and reminds you that there is some really good Theatre happening up and down the side streets of Manhattan.

About Show: 
The Golden Year

This play has everything – terrific acting, a great story and an unpredictable conclusion.
