Henry, a newly arrived immigrant to 1910 New York, finds himself at the center of this story involving a Bowery theatre facing eviction as the dawn of cinema becomes day. As the kinetoscopes that replace them are being installed, the showgirls wonder what will become of them while one dreams of a better life working in the garment factory nearby. Determined to become the new American success he himself has imagined, Henry is pulled by heart and hunger toward disparate and uncertain destinies, like a loving heiress' fortune, a hopeful laborer's dignity, and flickering visions of greatness that yet persist in the darkness of our city.

“Before Saturday night’s performance of 'Evening — 1910' was through, I knew I would want to hear its music again: those strings, those harmonies. In its score, the creators of this sung-through show, Randy Sharp and Paul Carbonara, have made something beautiful and delicate…like a sepia-tone memory…the band is excellent, the sound is full and the show is fast and fluid.”
The New York Times
“…the most exquisitely crafted music to be heard on the New York stage right now…boast(s) some of the best-crafted lyrics currently onstage…it is certainly a musical journey into the past that’s worth taking.”
Theatermania
“… (an) enchanting tale … rhapsodic … the result is beautiful to watch … stimulating.”
—Huffington Post
“'Evening-1910' is more of a tone poem…with a lush score evoking the early 1900s… the cast are all exquisite singers, and as an ensemble their sound is gorgeous…like peering through a kinetoscope and being touched by the solitary sadness of each character’s flickering image.”
—Stage Buddy
“…gorgeous, melodic songs…eloquent, thought-provoking...If you ever feel caught in a rut, or forget why you ever became excited about theatre in the first place, go see something — anything — at Axis Company.”
—The Villager
