Spring Humanities Festival: Triple Decker

The 3rd Annual Spring Humanities Festival features Triple Decker, a musical theater story of immigrant lives in South Providence, written by Marc Levitt, performed with Valerie Tutson, live cast and band.

The show is a one-hour story, with music, about the history of a triple-decker tenement in South Providence, R.I., and the six families from six immigrant groups who lived in the house over 60 years.

These groups of Armenians, Cape Verdeans, Dominicans, Cambodians, Africans, and Irish change themselves, each other, and the idea of what being an American means during their daily interactions.

Mr. Levitt explores the stories and myths these families brought to the United States while depicting how immigration and the subsequent living in an America at war, peace, depression and prosperity transformed their lives.
