Photo Coverage: York Theatre Celebrates Opening of A WORLD TO WIN
The York Theatre Company launches the Winter 2014 Musicals in Mufti Series Celebrating Sheldon Harnick with season opener, A World to Win, a new revue with Lyrics & Book by Sheldon Harnick and Music by Jerry Bock, plus David Baker, Larry Hochman, Michel Legrand, Richard Rodgers and Mr. Harnick. Directed by Robert Brink, and with Music Direction by Jeff Saver, the four-member cast features Kerry Conte, Jason Graae, Rhyn McLemore and Aaron Serotsky. BroadwayWorld has there for opening night and brings you photos of the festivities below!
The limited engagement plays 5 performances only January 17-19 at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (Entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
A World to Win is a sampling of Sheldon Harnick's wide-ranging career as a musical theatre writer. It covers everything from shows on and off Broadway, revues to book musicals, and well-known gems as well as hidden treasures that have never been performed publicly. Most of the music was written by his long-time collaborator Jerry Bock; other songs were composed by Richard Rodgers, Michel Legrand, David Baker, Larry Hochman and even Harnick himself.
The York Theatre Company's acclaimed Musicals in Mufti series of musical theatre gems, in a simply-staged, book-in-hand concert format, has presented over 90 shows from the past in its eighteen-year history. Mufti means: "in street clothes, without the trappings associated with the original full productions."
Tickets are priced at $45.00 ($31.50 for York Members) and are available online at www.yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (Entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue), Monday through Friday (12-6 PM). A special "Musical in Mufti" Three Show Package is also available for a discounted price of $108.
