At a senior living community in Upstate New York, a small group of residents refuse to go “gentle into that good night.” This band of former city dwellers from Brooklyn and The Bronx devise a plot to prove that “old” is not a New York state of mind.

The award-winning “A Jukebox for the Algonquin” spins a seriously comic tale of sex, drugs, and rocking chairs.
