Cadets Go Off-Broadway and Explore NoHo
Cadets had a great experience learning about a different part of New York City. They went to see a show called Girl from the North Country, that was set in Duluth, Minnesota during the depression and featured new arrangements of Bob Dylan music. This is an off-Broadway production at The Public, a theater known for taking risks on innovative productions. The Public launched such well-known shows as Hair, A Chorus Line, and Hamilton. Before the show, cadets had some time to explore "NoHo" (North of Houston Street) and Washington Square. They chose to visit places such as the Ukrainian Museum, the Tenement Museum, an outdoor Christmas market, and Katz's Deli. Patrons at The Public were delighted to see cadets at a production that is not mainstream, and many were surprised to learn that a theatre club is available to cadets. On the way home, cadets listened to the original versions of some of the Bob Dylan songs and discussed the ambiguous storyline and how it related to other productions they've seen.
