Performances Begin Today for York Theatre Company's ON THE AIR

The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director; Andrew Levine, Executive Director), dedicated to the development of new musicals and preserving musical gems from the past, presents a special event On the Air: Songs for Marian McPartland, a musical tribute honoring the legendary radio host, starring vocalist and radio personality Stacy Sullivan, with Jon Weber, on piano. Four performances only, Friday, September 26, 2014 through Sunday, September 28, 2014 at The York Theatre Company's home at Saint Peters (Citicorp Building, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).

When Marian McPartland died on August 31, 2013 at the age of 95, she left a bereaved public a legacy of untold musical wealth. Who best to communicate Marian McPartland's astounding legacy than Stacy Sullivan, award-winning international vocalist and radio personality, and piano wizard Jon Weber, who succeeded Marian as Piano Jazz host. These combined talents do Marian proud with a polished review of the Grande Dame's life and music, interwoven with favorites from the American Songbook.

The York Theatre Company is the only theater in New York City-and one of very few in the world-dedicated to developing and fully producing new musicals and preserving neglected, notable shows from the past. For over four decades, York's intimate, imaginative style of producing both original and neglected classic musicals has resulted in critical acclaim and recognition from artists and audiences alike. Under the guidance of Producing Artistic Director James Morgan since 1997, the York has focused exclusively on new musicals in its Mainstage Series-most of them world, American, or New York premieres-by some of the field's most esteemed creators, and has also helped launch the careers of many talented new writers. Over 35 cast recordings from The York Theatre Company productions are now available on CD, and commercial transfers of such York premieres as The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), Souvenir, Jolson & Company, and its acclaimed revivals of Closer Than Ever(2013 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Revival), Sweeney Todd and Pacific Overtures have all showcased the importance of the York and its programs.
