Washington Square uses photography, recorded testimony, and song to revive the spirit and characters of Washington Square Park in the mid-1980’s. Adapted from photographs and fieldwork by my father (Lee Wexler) in 1985 through 1987, each song in the piece portrays someone who connected deeply with the park; who called it home in some way.
