According to the promotional materials for Skyline:
Who can resist a musical about one of the most significant losses in preservation history? Experience the epic battle for Penn Station in an entirely new way with the world premiere of the musical based on the struggle to save this iconic edifice. In 1962, New York is a city suspended between the 19th and 21st centuries, and a battle is brewing between past and present, history and posterity, memory and the vision of the future. At the front lines of this battle stands beautiful, historic Pennsylvania Station: once a magnificent symbol of the city's future, now a neglected relic of its rapidly vanishing past. Skyline, by Maureen FitzGerald and Taylor Williams, and directed by Jason Blitman, tells the story of the ordinary New Yorkers who fought to rescue this doomed landmark from destruction. With its brisk and bantering libretto and jazz-infused musical score, Skyline is both a heartfelt love letter to the city of New York and a cautionary tale for any city and any age in which the rage for the new threatens to sever our lifeline to the past. The musical will receive its world premiere as part of the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival, a Production of The Present Company.
