March 2017 Theater: Encores! – The New Yorkers
High energy concert production of Cole Porter’s “The New Yorkers” will lift your spirits and through you back into fast and noisy Jazz Age of the 30s. Director John Rando had to go through some theater archeology to put this production back on stage as the original run had ended its Broadway engagement in 1931 with 168 performances.
The show at the New York City Center includes such Cole Porter classics as “Day and Night”, “You’ve Got That Thing”, “Take Me Back to Manhattan”, “Say It With Gin” and of course “I happen to love New York” which the New Yorker Times calls “a city’s sacred national anthem.” Jazz-singer Cyrille Aimee sweetly delivers “Love for Sale”. With booze flowing, music blasting, girls dancing, and silly jokes piling up, immerse yourself in that long gone era.
