Photo Coverage: MARK FELT, SUPERSTAR Celebrates Opening Night

When former FBI agent Mark Felt revealed in 2005 that he had been Deep Throat, the secret source who helped Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein bring down President Richard Nixon, he ended one of the most intriguing chapters in the history of journalism (and one of the worst in U.S. politics).

In this whimsical, jazzy musical romp, the multi-talented cast of five together portray twenty-four colorful characters in a fast-moving, illuminating take on the shocking political scandal that riveted America and still reverberates today. Part thriller, part tragedy, part comedy, Mark Felt, Superstar will have you rethinking everything you thought you knew about Deep Throat and Watergate, all while tapping your feet to some irresistible musical numbers.

The York's New2NY series is similar to its Musicals in Mufti series of simply-staged concert performances of underappreciated musicals from the past. However, New2NY-as its name indicates-focuses on new musicals, providing a stage between developmental lab and full production. Previous shows in the series have included In Transit (which just opened on Broadway), The Times, and this season's How to Be an American!.

The limited engagement of Mark Felt, Superstar will play 10 performances only, January 7 - 15, 2017 at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (619 Lexington Avenue, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
