Casting announced for the ENCORES! production of THE NEW YORKERS

February 23, 2017 by New York City Center

Casting announced for the Encores! production of The New Yorkers

We’re delighted to announce the cast of the Encores! production of The New Yorkers, the madcap Prohibition musical that introduced such Cole Porter standards as “Love for Sale” and “I Happen to Like New York.” Virtually unseen since its 1930 premiere, the show centers on featherbrained socialite Alice Wentworth (Olivier Award nominee Scarlett Strallen), whose bootlegger beau Al Spanish (Tam Mutu, Doctor Zhivago) leads her on a madcap romp from Park Avenue to Sing Sing and back again. Along the way, the couple encounters a parade of Depression-era archetypes: the vaudevillian Jimmie Deegan (three-time Tony Award nominee Kevin Chamberlin), the gangster Feet McGeegan (Arnie Burton, The 39 Steps), and a lady of the evening (Cyrille Aimée, A Bed and A Chair).

Directed by Tony Award winner John Rando, The New Yorkers also stars Clyde Alves, Todd Buonopane, Mylinda Hull, Robyn Hurder, Byron Jennings, Eddie Korbich, Jeffrey Schecter, Tyler Lansing Weaks, and Ruth Williamson. The ensemble includes Matt Bauman, Sam Bolen, Christine DiGiallonardo, Brian Flores, Tessa Grady, Matthew Griffin, Curtis Holland, Evan Kasprzak, Marina Lazzaretto, Kathryn McCreary, Timothy McDevitt, Kristyn Pope, Mariah Reshea Reives, Lindsay Roberts, Brendan Stimson, Joseph Wiggan, and Cody Williams.


The New Yorkers will run seven performances only at City Center from March 22-26, 2017.
