Set in Coney Island at the turn of the 20th century, the story centers on Jack Chapman III (Johnny Appleseed’s grandson), who sets out to save his family’s apple orchard by enlisting the help of Nathan Handwerker (founder of Nathan’s Hot Dogs), Warren Lincoln Travis (“The World’s Strongest Man”), and Lina “Hank” Beecher (designer of the first looping roller coaster). Together, this very different group of friends discover the magic of a new kind of music: barbershop harmony.
The limited engagement, that began November 30, will continue through December 23.
Tickets are available at AppleBoysNYC.com or by calling (212) 352-3101.
