Marilyn Maye in May: The York Spring Benefit Concert
MAY 16, 2022
The York Theatre Company, in association with Riki Kane Larimer, is excited to bring the Manhattan Queen of Cabaret, Marilyn Maye, accompanied by the incomparable Tedd Firth, to The Theatre at St. Jeans for a one-night-only special benefit concert of Marilyn Maye in May.
The Spring Benefit Concert is scheduled to begin at 7:30PM. Show-Only tickets for the Spring Benefit Concert are priced at $125. Special VIP tickets priced at $200 include the concert, followed by a light buffet supper and special VIP reception with Ms. Maye.
The highly praised singer, actress, director, arranger, educator, and Grammy-nominated recording artist is a musical treasure. Thrilled to share her performance with The York, she is known for her powerhouse delivery, electric stage presence, and chatty rapport with the audience. Marilyn Maye is a consummate entertainer who breathes new life into classics, carrying the torch from her peers who originated tunes of the Great American Songbook to the future generation of singers.

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!
