Liberty Live

At Liberty Hall by James Christy
October 16–19, 2014
Thursday at 10:30 a.m.
Friday at 3 p.m. & 8 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday at 3 p.m.

The story of an unlikely pair of American immigrants, At Liberty Hall follows two high school students who've just moved to New Jersey: Christian Rosario, a funny but unfocused teenager from Queens by way of the Dominican Republic; and Alexander Hamilton, 16, the subject of Christian's 10th grade history project. This time-bending story finds common threads of humor, honor and awkwardness as told through the experiences of a someday-Founding Father and a kid looking for a way out of the projects.
