America-in-Play, now in its fifth season, aims to immerse contemporary theatre artists in a neglected but dazzling legacy of plays and popular entertainment forms from 1776-1920. Through grounding artists in America’s cultural beginnings, America-in-Play seeks to inspire and enrich new theatre writing and performance about our lives now. The Segal Center presents America-in-Play’s CROSSING OVER: A Medicine Show Entertainment, a new show of old theatrical tricks in song, playlets, tall tales, short riffs and visual mysteries, plus guest appearances. Join us as we seek to cure the fabled illness “Americanitis,” leading you through stories and displays about immigration to and inside America. Come early for pre-show exhibits and entertainment.

Presented as part of New York City’s Immigrant Heritage Week.
