Make Me a Song: The Music of William Finn Postponed

Junkyard Dog Productions and Larry Hirschhorn announced today that the New York premiere of Make Me a Song: The Music of William Finn will be postponed until the 2007-2008 theatre season, due to scheduling conflicts.  The theatrical revue, conceived and directed by Rob Ruggiero, was scheduled to begin previews on Friday, April 6 and to open on Thursday, April 19 at The Zipper Theatre (336 West 37th Street). 

Conceived and directed by Rob Ruggiero, the show had its world premiere in August 2006 at TheaterWorks in Hartford, CT.  The original company, featuring Sandy Binion (Jane Eyre), Joe Cassidy (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Adam Heller (Caroline, or Change, A Class Act), Sally Wilfert (Assassins) and John DiPinto on piano, reunites for this production, which begins previews on Friday, April 6, 2007 at The Zipper Theatre (336 West 37th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues).  The Opening Night is Thursday, April 19, 2007.

 "A two–time Tony Award winner for the groundbreaking musical Falsettos, William Finn is currently represented on Broadway with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.  Featuring classics from these shows juxtaposed with rarely-heard selections from Romance in Hard Times, Elegies and the yet to be produced The Royal Family, Make Me a Song is big, boisterous and life-loving, like Finn himself," state press materials.

The production has scenic design by Luke Hegel-Cantarella, costume design by Alejo Vietti, lighting design by John Lasiter and sound design by Tony Meola and Kai Harada.

The show is presented by Junkyard Dog Productions and Larry Hirschhorn in association with Jayson Raitt.

The performance schedule will be:  Monday through Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. through Saturday, April 21; and Tuesday through Friday evenings at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. beginning Tuesday, April 24.
