Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood

September 13 - October 16, 2022

Back by popular demand, Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood is an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of the timeless song catalogue of Irving Berlin’s compositions for the silver screen. Mr. Berlin understood the impact dance had on the public, and his melodies, rhythms, and lyrics reflected his love of that art form. Six spectacular performers will showcase these magnificent songs and will also tell the stories behind the man who made the music that made the movies dance.

Four-time Tony nominee Randy Skinner (42nd StreetDames at SeaIrving Berlin’s White Christmas, and Ain’t Broadway Grand) directs and choreographs an evening featuring an array of classic Berlin tunes from such classic films as Top HatAlexander’s Ragtime BandHoliday InnEaster ParadeWhite Christmas, and many more!

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 York has chosen the 2022 recipient of the Oscar Hammerstein Award—a show business luminary whose tremendous talent and legendary career has spanned from Broadway to television to movies—and we can only exclaim, Hallelujah, Baby!

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 will be 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 YORK THEATRE COMPANY WILL ALWAYS STAND FIRMLY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY IN SUPPORT OF SOCIAL JUSTICE IN ALL ITS FORMS. WE JOIN THE MEMBERS OF THE THEATRICAL COMMUNITY IN A BELIEF THAT BLACK LIVES MATTER, THAT JUSTICE MATTERS, AND THAT THE FIGHT FOR MEANINGFUL CHANGE INVOLVES US ALL.

"So hand in hand we stand and join
The universe in mourning
Straining our vision for a glimpse
Of a new world aborning, a brand new world aborning."

Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope

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!
