York Theatre Company’s production of Carmelina will begin performances on January 26, with opening night set for January 27. The production, scheduled to run through February 3, is part of 25th anniversary Musicals in Mufti season dedicated to the works of Alan Jay Lerner. The version of Carmelina to be presented by the York is a revised one created by Joseph Stein, Burton Lane, and Lerner protégé Barry Harman for The York in 1996, then further revised for a second Mufti presentation ten years later.
Directed by Michael Leeds, Carmelina concerns an Italian woman who has raised her teenage daughter to believe her father was an American who died heroically in World War II—all the while collecting child support checks from three American soldiers, each of whom thinks he is the girl’s father. Complications arise when all three soldiers show up at the same time for a reunion.
