DEVELOPMENTAL READING SERIES
Each year, The York makes a home for 30 to 40 readings of new musicals a year through its Developmental Reading Series. Our strong commitment to developing new work is an important part of what makes The York unique in the musical theatre community. We make it possible for writers to avail themselves of the opportunity to do a developmental reading and to be able to share it with an ever-growing, enthusiastic audience.

In a magical forest, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a father on a mission, and an impoverished improv troupe collide on the night of the Fairy Revels. You might think you know this story...but you don't. A contemporary remix of A Midsummer Night's Dream, set in Central Park [and set to a tuneful, clever pop-theatre score]. No donkeys will be harmed.
