American Schemes is a special commission by City Parks Foundation that delves into and explores the enigma of The American Dream. Comprised of three acts that focus on people from various social hierarchies including immigrant vendors trying to make dollars, corporate yuppies trying to make a family and female emcees trying to make it big, everyone is trying to 'make it' in the land of golden opportunity. But at what cost?
The full cast of American Schemes includes Radha Blank, Jocelyn Bioh (Fatou/Plush), Robyn Corujo (Rosa), Glenn Gordon (Daryl/Clay), Teresa Avia Lim (Lucy, Assistant), and Ayesha Ngaujah (Tracy, Idunno).
This year in honor of the 25th anniversary, SummerStage is excited to have expanded from Central Park to encompass all five boroughs, and will feature productions in Von King Park, Brooklyn, Betsy Head Park, Brooklyn, St. Mary’s Park, Bronx, Crotona Park, Bronx, Springfield Park, Queens, Marcus Garvey Park, Manhattan and East River Park, Manhattan.
