Hoagy Carmichael's Stardust Road

Hoagy Carmichael's STARDUST ROAD

November 22 - December 31, 2022

Hoagy Carmichael’s Stardust Road is a new musical journey that tells the story of six friends and the one man who brought them together. The musical is told completely through the sophisticated music of Hoagy Carmichael. The seven friends weave a story of camaraderie and shifting relationships through four decades in America: the early years of ragtime, jazz and blues; the romance of New York in the 1930’s; the tumultuous and uncertain years of the World War II era; and the post-war Golden Age of Hollywood—all while walking down Hoagy Carmichael’s Stardust Road.

This exciting original production is produced by The York Theatre Company. At the helm of this new musical journey through Hoagy Carmichael’s classic songs are director Susan H. Schulman and choreographer Michael Lichtefeld, who together oversaw the Broadway productions of Little Women, The Sound of Music, The Secret Garden, and the Circle in the Square/York production of Sweeney Todd. The music supervisor and arranger is Broadway maestro Lawrence Yurman (War Paint, It Shoulda Been You, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, Grey Gardens).

The York Theatre is currently producing at The Theatre at St. Jeans (150 East 76th Street & Lexington Avenue) due to a January 2021 flood from a city water main break that destroyed their home of 30 years at Saint Peter’s Church.

The flood at St. Peter’s on January 4, 2021…

On January 4, The York Theatre sustained major flood damage due to a water main break. “We are devastated but we will recover…There’s damage everywhere from mud and water. We’re working to recover archival files, scripts, lighting equipment, costumes, scenery—and 50 years of York Theatre history. Computers, carpeting, and some lighting equipment will need replacing; irreplaceable are certain papers and artwork. We ask that you keep us in your thoughts,” said Jim Morgan.

Shortly thereafter, Jim Morgan created a Facebook post and fundraiser which garnered an incredible response. We are deeply moved and grateful to our community of patrons, artists and volunteers for coming together to help the York rebuild after this disaster.

The York Theatre has moved out of its space entirely, putting everything in storage for the time being so the space can be remediated. We look forward to the future with excitement!
