Me & Ella

JULY 15 - JULY 23, 2017

Set against the restless backdrop of the 20th Century and the lush serenity of the Ella Fitzgerald songbook, Broadway veteran Andrea Frierson’s Me & Ella is a valentine to the “First Lady of Song.” Ms. Frierson’s personal storytelling and song stylings provide a loving glimpse into why Ella’s music, heart and determination to overcome the challenges in her life and career continue to inspire. Me & Ella was featured last season as part of the York’s Developmental Reading Series and commemorates the centennial of the legendary songstress.

The York’s New2NY series is similar to its Musicals in Mufti series of simply-staged concert performances of musical gems from the past.  However, New2NY—as its name indicates—focuses on new musicals, providing a stage between developmental lab and full production.  Previous shows in the series have included In Transit (which opened on Broadway last season), The Times, Larry Grossman’s Compose Yourself!, and this season’s Mark Felt: Superstar and How to Be an American!
