Review: Niagara Falls from Broken Habit

    No Comments

    About a month ago I posted about a new play about Niagara Falls that is being performed in New Orleans. Here is some more info…

    From the Gambit:

    If Samuel Beckett were alive today, he might focus a play on an American treasure transformed into a tourist trap and toxic waste dump. But the message of Niagara Falls, presented recently by Broken Habit Productions at Theatre at St. Claude, is a more dismal existential vision…

    Niagara Falls tells the story of a city destroyed by neglect, poverty and pollution, which could describe many urban environments abandoned by industry and left to deteriorate. Its suburb, Love Canal, is reeling from an environmental disaster resulting from the construction of homes and schools on land where chemical waste was dumped. Love Canal residents develop leukemia, and their neighborhood is demolished.
