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.

MONDAY, MAY 20th at 7 p.m.

It's 1921, and despite the shocked whispers, thirteen-year-old Mary Marie is surprisingly philosophical about her parents' divorce. In fact, she can't wait to observe, first-hand, their inevitable new romances. But after months of being shuttled between them, what she observes is that Mother is different. Could Father, who has always been as distant as the stars he studies, be changing too?

FEATURING:

Caitlin Cohn
Austin Ku
Kelly Lester
Sean MacLaughlin
Alexandra Silber
