"Gene isn't satisfied with life in Brooklyn - no, he's meant for bigger things," according to press notes. "After crashing a party and meeting a fabulous southern dame (also a crasher) he comes up with a scheme to get rich quick on the market, and this plan can't fail...can it?"

The creative team also includes Brian Nason (lighting) and Geoff Josselson (casting director).

Tickets are priced at $45 and are available online at yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
