The York Mufti presentation is I and Albert's New York premiere.  "I and Albert tells the love story between Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert. In 1839, Victoria fell in love with Albert who was her first cousin from the small German principality of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Married in 1840, royal couple's family life drastically differed with the images of previous British monarchs," state press materials.  The musical has music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Lee Adams and book by Jay Presson Allen (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Tru).  It premiered at London's Piccadilly Theatre in 1972 under the direction of John Schlesinger and ran for 120 performances.   An original cast album was recorded on Jay Records in 1981.
