210 Amlent Avenue
a new musical

Praise for our NYMF 2015 run:

“Played by an excellent four-piece band, Karl Hinze’s frequently mournful music is lovely.”
–The New York Times


“210 Amlent Avenue is as dark as it is mysterious and the musical is well worth the look. It’s as thrilling as Bloodline and as celebrative of family dysfunction as Broadway’s The Country House – with a voice of its own.” –Theatre Reviews Limited

Welcome to the Hamptons, where fireworks are about to go off – guests are gathering at the old Jordan estate at 210 Amlent Avenue for Fourth of July Festivities with their host, Mrs. Jordan, a retired actress. But one unexpected guest, Judah, a young poet, is about to ignite a firestorm of events. In his search for the truth, he will unearth long kept secrets that will lead to unexpected consequences.
