Join York’s Producing Artistic Director Jim Morgan as he interviews notable figures from the world of musical theater. On Tuesday, June 28, we are featuring lyricist/librettist Tom Jones (and member of The York's honorary board), known for his work on The Fantasticks, 110 in the Shade, Celebration, Harold and Maude, and I Do! I Do! The wide-ranging conversation between these 41-year friends covers the numerous shows they have worked on together at The York, family, and the future, including the LGBTQ production of The Fantasticks, which was recently produced in Michigan.
For extra points—which of the shows above has not been done at The York Theatre? For extra, extra points what other shows by Tom Jones, and with other collaboraters, have also been done at The York?

Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood
September 13 - October 16, 2022
Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood is an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of the most famous songs that Irving Berlin composed 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 Street, Dames at Sea, Irving 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 Hat, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Holiday Inn, Easter Parade, White 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 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!
