Photo Flash: York Theatre Company's STARTING HERE, STARTING NOW Celebrates Opening Night

The York Theatre Company, dedicated to the development of new musicals and the preservation of musical gems from the past, celebrates musical revues with the final show of the Winter 2016 Musicals in Mufti Series: STARTING HERE, STARTING NOW, with music by David Shire and lyrics and direction by Richard Maltby, Jr. The limited engagement opened last night, March 13, at The York Theatre Company, and BroadwayWorld has photos from the festivities below!

With music direction by Kevin Stites, the three-member cast features Krystal Joy Brown (Motown, The Musical), Charlotte Maltby (Empire), and Bobby Conte Thornton (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum).

This bold, extroverted revue takes a journey through the maze of modern relationships with its heart firmly on its sleeve. From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to ecstatic shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, STARTING HERE, STARTING NOW has an appealing freshness as relevant today as it was when it premiered in 1976.

Single tickets for STARTING HERE, STARTING NOW are priced at $45 and available online at www.yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (619 Lexington Avenue, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue), Monday through Friday (12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.).
