Old-fashioned melodrama, Under the Gaslight, brings 1860s theatre to the Crystal Sea Drama Company. Melodrama has something for everyone. In Augustin Daly’s 1867 script, Under the Gaslight, the beautiful young Laura Courtland, belle of New York society, is plunged into poverty by a terrible secret from her past. She must claw her way back to the top while facing evil villains and finding her perfect hero. Under the Gaslight introduced to the world the oft-parodied melodramatic idea of someone being tied to the railroad tracks by a fiendish, moustache-twirling villain, while a train bears down on them.
