New York, New York

The producers of New York, New York – the new Broadway musical nominated for 9 Tony Awards, including “Best Musical” – have announced that “New York, New York,” the show's iconic title track, is being released as a special single today, Friday, June 9. Stream and download the single HERE.

The show's full Original Broadway Cast Recording will now be released digitally on Friday, June 23. The CD release is planned for August. Unlike many cast recordings, the album features 90 minutes of music from the show's score, including orchestral interludes. Like the show, the album will be a love letter to New York City, with music ranging from thrilling Afro-Cuban rhythms, and traditional Big Band, to classic Broadway showstoppers. Released through the Wine & Peaches label, the album is produced by Michael Croiter, Sam Davis, Lin-Manuel Miranda, co-produced by Sonia Friedman, Tom Kirdahy, Craig Balsam.

To celebrate the release of the single, a new music video for the title track – highlighting the show's co-star Anna Uzele, and featuring exclusive studio and performance footage – is also being released today. 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, currently running at Broadway's St. James Theatre (246 West 44th Street), is a brand-new musical featuring music and lyrics by Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award winners and Academy Award nominees John Kander & Fred Ebb, with additional lyrics by Pulitzer, Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda. The book is written by Tony Award nominee David Thompson, and co-written by Tony Award nominee Sharon Washington. New York, New York is directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman, and produced by Sonia Friedman and Tom Kirdahy.

Currently nominated for 9 Tony Awards including “Best Musical,” New York, New York's composer John Kander has been awarded a 2023 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Chita Rivera Awards. New York, New York is the recipient of 2 Outer Critics Circle Awards for “Outstanding Choreography” (Susan Stroman) and “Outstanding Scenic Design, Play or Musical” (Beowulf Boritt), the Drama Desk Award for “Best Scenic Design of a Musical” (Beowulf Boritt), and the Chita Rivera Award for “Outstanding Ensemble in a Broadway Show.”

In New York, New York, it is 1946, the war is over, and a resurgent New York is beginning to rebuild. As steel beams swing overhead, a collection of artists has dreams as big and diverse as the city itself. Among them is New York native Jimmy Doyle, a brilliant but disillusioned musician looking for his “major chord” in life: music, money, love. The odds are against him getting all three until he meets Francine Evans, a young singer just off the bus from Philly, who is destined for greatness. If they can make it there, they can make it anywhere.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK is a spectacular show for a singular city. With a unique blend of dazzling new songs and big band classics (“New York, New York,” “But the World Goes 'Round”), this jubilant new musical is destined to become the talk of the town. Be a part of it.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK marks the first new John Kander & Fred Ebb musical to open on Broadway since 2015's The Visit, which was nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical. The legendary duo is also currently represented on Broadway with Chicago, which holds the distinction of being the longest-running American musical in Broadway history. This new musical is inspired by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture New York, New York, written by Earl M. Rauch.
