Skyline is part of the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival.

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.

What's really wrong with people? I would air this whole comment section as the actual source. Anyone who talks negative about me, my family, or my case is oblivious to my situation. All im going to say is God bless ameriKKKa NOT America. And rest in peace to the innocent victims of recent brutality and police shootings.

Anthony jones said...

My case was not dismissed, but my case is over. I'm free to talk or violate any false accusations. I will not tell people how much money I given, for that is personal. So for now on, whoever I feel doesn't come correct about my situation on this blog will get personal answers from me.

You're dumb.

Oh, I know it won't. But 4 to 6 months for this renovation? The Empire State building was constructed in a year.

I think it's going to be fantastic - unlike any other diner. People are going to want to dine there - just for the experience of being in the incredible space.

For a change, I agree with you... I already love going there - no matter how it looks.
