​A brand new musical by York NEO writer and 2018 Jonathan Larson Award winner Mark Sonnenblick...

​Singer Trevor Copeland and songwriter Arthur Brightman have the perfect New York romance. That’s swell. In 1965, it’s also against the law. So in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight— a nightclub act where Trevor sings Arthur’s love songs with their male pronouns intact. But, as the lovers hurtle towards the end of the decade, they find themselves caught in a passion they can’t control and a political revolution they don’t understand.

Featuring a seductive score inspired by the Great American Songbook, MIDNIGHT AT THE NEVER GET is a sultry meditation on identity, memory, and enduring romance.

An excerpt of MIDNIGHT AT THE NEVER GET was first present at Musical Theatre Factory's 4x15 (as Midnight at the Rialto) in April 2015. The show subsequently was produced by Don't Tell Mama, first as a sold-out developmental concert, and then as a limited-run production that extended due to popular demand. It was then produced in a sold-out run in the 2016 New York Musical Festival, followed in 2017 by a critically-acclaimed six-week engagement in Provincetown, Massachusetts, with The Never Get created as a fully immersive club venue.

"So SMART, So FUNNY, so MOVING! The audience bristles with the excitement of being present at the birth of what could be a MAJOR MUSICAL."
