New York, New York begins performances Friday, March 24, 2023 and officially opens Wednesday, April 26, 2023 at Broadway's St. James Theatre (246 West 44th Street).

Featuring music and lyrics by Tony, Emmy & Grammy Award winners and Academy Award nominees John Kander & Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret), written by Tony Award nominee David Thompson (The Scottsboro Boys, Steel Pier), co-written by Sharon Washington (Audible's Feeding The Dragon) and featuring additional lyrics by Pulitzer, Tony, Emmy & Grammy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, In The Heights), New York, New York will be directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, The Scottsboro Boys).

NEW YORK, NEW YORK will feature scenic design by Tony Award winner Beowulf Boritt (POTUS), costume design by Emmy Award winner Donna Zakowska ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"), lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington (The Scottsboro Boys), sound design by Tony Award winner Kai Harada (The Band's Visit), projection design by Christopher Ash (Network) and Beowulf Boritt, hair & wig design by Emmy Award winner Sabana Majeed ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"), music supervision and arrangements by Sam Davis (Company), orchestrations by Tony Award winner Daryl Waters (Memphis) and Sam Davis, vocal arrangements by David Loud (The Visit), music direction by Alvin Hough, Jr. (Tina - The Tina Turner Musical), casting by Jim Carnahan, CSA and Jason Thinger, CSA, and production stage management by Johnny Milani.

Producers Sonia Friedman and Tom Kirdahy said, "It is an incredible honor to present this new musical by a team of Broadway legends. In New York, New York audiences will experience the city like never before, following a group of hopeful dreamers as they each strive to follow their hearts and desires. It is a joyful celebration of New York and the power of community by some of the great New Yorkers, and we cannot wait for audiences near and far to come be a part of it all - the rhythm, the music, and the magic of a big, brand new Broadway musical."

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 production reunites John Kander with director and choreographer Susan Stroman, book writer David Thompson, and co-writer Sharon Washington, who collaborated with both John Kander & Fred Ebb on Broadway's The Scottsboro Boys, which was nominated for 12 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Kander, Ebb, Stroman and Thompson also previously collaborated on Steel Pier, which was nominated for 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, as well as Off-Broadway productions of The Beast in the Jungle, And the World Goes 'Round and the revival of Flora and the Red Menace. New York, New York marks the first official collaboration between the creative team and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

This new musical is inspired by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Motion Picture New York, New York written by Earl M. Rauch. New York, New York is produced by Sonia Friedman and Tom Kirdahy, in association with MGM On Stage and Chartoff-Winkler.

His Broadway credits include Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Motown, the recent revivals of Merrily We Roll Along (featuring Daniel Radcliffe), Once On This Island, The Color Purple, as well as The Piano Lesson (featuring Samuel L. Jackson), where he provided both music direction and original incidental music. Alvin has also worked on numerous films and TV series, from "Schmigadoon 2" and "Spirited" to "Annie Live!" and the "South Park 25th Anniversary" commercials. Alvin started playing piano when he was 5 years old. Classically trained, Alvin has performed at the Kennedy Center, at the Capitol for Mother Teresa's Congressional Medal of Honor Ceremony, and at the White House for the Clintons while growing up in Washington, DC. Also, via the DC Boys' Choir, he has both played and sung in Austrian opera houses and Parisian cathedrals. But when he turned 13, his piano teacher humbly realized her limitations and introduced him to colleagues who could expand his musical horizons. She strong-armed his church into letting him play during Sunday morning services, thereby allowing him to be influenced by gospel music. She also opened Alvin's eyes to the world of musical theatre as he was introduced to The Who's Tommy in a summer theatre camp. Believe it or not, Alvin's musical training does not extend to conservatory. One of the more important things he likes to pass on is that there is no special formula to end up on Broadway. As proof, even though he's currently not using them, Alvin has a Bachelor's from Harvard College in Earth and Planetary Sciences and a Master's in Meteorology from the Georgia Institute of Technology. His passion for music pulled him away from Atlanta and up to New York, where he has now lived since 2009. He sends love to his wife Rebecca and their two young children, Samuel and Camille.
