The Apple Tree is a series of three musical plays which you can see with your Manhattan rent a car. The three plays each have their own story lines, but they are tied together by common musical themes and references. For example, the color brown is used throughout.
The first act of the play is based on Mark Twain’s The Diary of Adam and Eve; the second is based on Frank R. Stockton’s The Lady or the Tiger; and the final act is based on Jules Feiffer’s Passionella. This play was first produced on Broadway in 1966 at the Shubert Theatre and originally won a Tony Award for the best actress in a musical. Today you can see it with your Manhattan rent a car at the Roundabout Theatre Company, which is one of the largest not-for-profit theater companies in New York.
Two plays for one
The Roundabout Theatre Company is the largest non-profit theater company in New York and they own two Broadway theaters that you can visit with your Manhattan rent a car. One is Studio 54 and the other is the American Airlines Theater. They also have one Off-Broadway Theater, the Laura Pels Theater in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Arts. The Apple Tree is currently playing at Studio 54 where 110 Degrees in the Shade is also playing.
It’s getting hot in here
110 in the Shade is the story of a heat wave in the 1930s which you can also see at Studio 54 with your Manhattan rent a car. It follows the life of Lizzie Curry, who is on the verge of becoming an old maid. It is the middle of a heat wave in Texas and everyone is waiting for the wind and the rain to cool down. Lizzie has a secret crush on the town sheriff, who doesn’t return her love. But then one day a charismatic rainmaker comes to town, and turns her life upside down. From the same authors of The Fantasticks, it is a play about American magic realism.
