Sam Bolen Returns to Lead MIDNIGHT AT THE NEVER GET at the York

A brand new musical by York NEO writer and 2018 Jonathan Larson Award winner Mark Sonnenblick, Midnight at the Never Get tells the story of singer Trevor Copeland and songwriter Arthur Brightman, who have the perfect New York romance. That's swell. In 1965, it's also against the law. So, in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight-a nightclub act where Trevor sings Arthur's love songs with their male pronouns intact. But as the lovers hurtle toward the end of the decade, they find themselves caught in a passion they can't control and a political revolution they don't understand.
Featuring a seductive score inspired by the Great American Songbook, Midnight at the Never Get is a sultry meditation on identity, memory, and enduring romance.
After an initial developmental run at Don't Tell Mama, Midnight at the Never Get was produced in a sold-out run in the 2016 New York Musical Festival, followed in 2017 by a critically-acclaimed six-week engagement in Provincetown, Massachusetts, with The Never Get created as a fully immersive club venue.
The creative team includes Christopher Swader and Justin Swader (Set Design), Vanessa Leuck (Costume Design), Jamie Roderick (Lighting Design), Kevin Heard(Sound Design), Addison Heeren (Prop Design), and Kevin Maloof (Production Manager). The Production Stage Manager is Julianne Menassian. The Assistant Stage Manager is Shanna Allison. The Casting Director is Jason Styres, CSA.
