The York Theatre Company just presented its Spring Gala Celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Off-Broadway hit The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!).

Director Pamela Hunt returned to re-create her original staging for this festive occasion, with veteran The Musicals of Musicals music director Rich Silverstein. The cast features Rachel de Benedet (Berlin to Broadway...), George Dvorsky (Closer Than Ever), Gerry McIntyre (Subways Are for Sleeping), Conor Ryan(Desperate Measures), Peter Saide (Desperate Measures), and Stephanie Umoh (Hallelujah, Baby!). Joining the cast of eight is Lauren Molina (Desperate Measures), and Michelle Ragusa (Young Frankenstein).

Revisit this brilliant theatre parody 15 years after its world premiere: This joyous homage to musical theatre began its journey at The York in 2003, and has been entertaining audiences across the country and around the world ever since. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) pays loving tongue-in-cheek tribute to Broadway'sRodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, and Kander & Ebb. An innocent ingénue is threatened by her evil landlord when she can't pay her rent; this one story is delightfully told in five hilarious musicals in this acclaimed Off-Broadway hit, which started at The York and ran for over 500 NYC performances. Join The York for an elegant and entertaining evening with delicious culinary selections.

The York Theatre Company is the only theatre 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 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 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. Almost 40 cast recordings from York Theatre Companyproductions are now available on CD, including its acclaimed revival of Closer Than Ever (2013 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Revival); commercial transfers of such York premieres as The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), Souvenir (Tony Award Nomination for actress Judy Kaye), and Jolson & Company, and revivals of Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd (four Tony Nominations including Best Revival) have all showcased the importance of The York and its programs. Recent New York premieres have included Marry Harry, A Taste of Things to Come, Rothschild & Sons, and Desperate Measures, which just completed a three and a half month extended run. The critically acclaimed musical Yank!, which received its Off-Broadway debut at The York in 2010, recently opened to rave reviews in London as did York's Rothschild and Sons. The hit musical Cagney, received its York premiere in 2015 and subsequently transferred to The Westside Theatre for over 15 months. Desperate Measures has just been announced for New World Stages in late spring of this year.
