Metropolitan Playhouse Presents Clyde Fitch’s The Climbers
Metropolitan Playhouse 220 East 4th Street NYC 10009
THE CLIMBERS is a sharp satire from the Gilded Age of both vulgar competitors for wealth and status, as well as the censorious critics who resisted them. In Fitch’s incisive eye, the scramble to assert superiority is a curse for all sides in a play that is a welcome appraisal of a divided culture from a century past. His vote for compassion and empathy is one that should count again.
Tickets $30; $25 students/seniors
