Set against a backdrop of gilded-ageMoreHarry Thaw Hates Everybody is a genre-bending, high-speed, turn-of-the-century romp in four acts - each in a different theatrical style: vaudeville, living newspaper, courtroom farce and post-modern collage.

Set against a backdrop of gilded-age opulence and accompanied by authentic period songs, the play takes as its starting point the real-life 1906 murder of New Yorks architectural eminence Stanford White at the hands of deranged coal baron Harry Thaw, his rival for the affections of Broadway super-soubrette Evelyn Nesbit. Using an eclectic mix of American pomp splashed with turn-of-the-century burlesque theatrics, Harry Thaw serves up a comedic tour de force for four great performers and a darkly whimsical look at the clash between hedonism and poverty, the emotional toll of romantic excess, and murderous revenge a la high society.
