God Shows Up

​at the Playroom Theater

February 10 2019- February 21 2019

God Shows Up asks: What happens when God chooses to drop in to his creation of Earth after an absence of a couple of thousand years? Why does he choose the broadcast studio of a well-known televangelist who serves all faiths from his megachurch in Saint Louis? What is God's true take on God? What is God's true take on religion?

“For a number of years, I have wondered, if there is a god, how would that god would respond to the world that those in his image have built,” said producer Eric Krebs explaining the motivation of the play. "I challenged Peter Filichia to write such a play, and here we are... God Shows Up. Peter's script is far more controversial, funny and philosophical than I ever might have imagined. I can't wait for the shouting matches to begin after performances."

Directed by Christopher Scott, the cast features Maggie Bofill (LABryinth Company Member), Lou Liberatore (Daniel’s Husband) and Christopher Sutton (Spamalot).

Carmelina

at York Theatre Company

January 26 2019- February 3 2019


 In a picturesque Italian village, Carmelina has raised her teenaged daughter to believe her father was an American who died heroically in World War II—all the while collecting child support checks from three American soldiers, each of whom thinks he is the girl’s father. Complications arise when all three soldiers show up at the same time for a reunion. Even though the original Broadway production only ran for 17 performances, the lush Lerner and Lane score received a 1979 Tony Award nomination for Best Score. The version of Carmelina presented here is the revised version created by Joseph Stein, Burton Lane, and Lerner protégé Barry Harman for The York in 1996, then further revised for a second Mufti presentation ten years later.  Music by Burton Lane, lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, additional lyrics by Barry Harman, and book by Joseph Stein and Alan Jay Lerner. 


Directed by Michael Leeds (Bette and Barry: From Bathhouse to Broadway), and with music direction by David Hancock Turner (Desperate Measures), the eight-member cast features Andréa Burns (In the Heights) in the eponymous title role, with Antonio Cipriano (Jagged Little Pill) as Roberto/Guitarist, MaryJoanna Grisso (West Side Story) as Gia Campbell/Hostess, Evan Harrington (Chicago) as Walter Braddock/Waiter, Anne L. Nathan (Once) as Rosa/Cook, Timothy John Smith (Candide) as Steve Karzinski/Waiter, Joey Sorge (A Bronx Tale) as Vittorio Dela Marta/Eduardo, and Jim Stanek (Fun Home; 7 York Mufti’s) as Carlton Smith/Waiter.

After previous sold-out Mufti runs in 1996 and 2006, the delightful Carmelina makes its return to The York.

The Day Before Spring

at the York Theatre Company 

February 9 2019 - February 17 2019


A married woman attends a college reunion where she encounters the man with whom she almost eloped ten years before. Romantically stirred by a novel he has written about her, she considers leaving her husband and reuniting with her former flame. With a score that was never recorded, moments of The Day Before Spring served as inspiration for such Lerner and Loewe classics as Gigi and My Fair Lady. Although the show was previously seen in a Mufti staging in 2007, this presentation will feature the full original score, recently being discovered for a 2010 UK production–its first hearing in New York since 1945. Marc Acito directs, with music direction by David Hancock Turner.

Lolita, My Love

at York Theatre Company 

February 23 2019- March 3 2019


 Based on the 1955 novel by Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita is written with music by John Barry and book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. The musical, which originally closed in Boston in 1971, closely follows the legendary novel: a college professor named Humbert Humbert becomes fascinated by and starts to seduce his landlady's young daughter, Dolores "Lolita" Haze. The fascination quickly turns into obsession, and soon a whirlwind race across the US begins. ”For this Mufti presentation, Erik Haagensen (Darling of the Day and The Day Before Spring in Mufti) has created a new script, edited together from Lerner’s assorted drafts, each vastly different from the others. Haagensen has stated that “now audiences will have a chance to hear Lolita on stage and decide for themselves what they think of this unquestionably daring musical that begins as a black comedy and ends in tragedy.”
