June 12 - July 1 -This world premiere one-man musical by Alan Govenar and Akin Babatundé is the true story of the legendary bluesman Blind Lemon Jefferson.

Musical Theatre Training Program

Train with top professionals at the award-winning Off-Broadway theatre that ONLY produces musicals. Programs available for middle school, high school, college students, and recent graduates.


Now in Previews -- Direct from its sold-out run at The York, the musical comedy gone wild heads Off-Broadway to New World Stages to begin life in the "west" (side of Manhattan).


Now in its 48th year, The York is the only theater in the city, and one of the few in the world, whose two-fold mission is to produce new musical works and rediscover musical gems from the past.

With great sadness, the Board, Management, and Staff of The York Theatre Company acknowledge the passing of long-time patron, board member, supporter, and friend Robert Goldberg, after a long, hard-fought illness. No one loved what we do more than he, and no one was more passionate about our potential. He will be very sorely missed. Our love goes out to Laurie Mintz and Metro.
