Megan Hilty and Rachel York star in the Encores! production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which opened on May 9 at New York City Center. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was directed by John Rando with music direction by Rob Berman and choreography by Randy Skinner and played for seven performances, May 9 – 13, at New York City Center. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the closing reception and brings you photo coverage below!

Set in the Roaring Twenties, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes follows the madcap adventures of the original "dumb blonde," Lorelei Lee (Hilty), as she sets sail for Europe with her best friend Dorothy Shaw (York). Lorelei is engaged to Gus Esmond, the Button King (Clarke Thorell) and has a flirtation with Josephus Gage, The Zipper King (Stephen R. Buntrock). Traveling with them are Mrs. Ella Spofford (Deborah Rush), the richest woman in Philadelphia, her son Henry (Aaron Lazar) and a ship full of colorful characters.
