News   Golf: The Musical Returns to NYC July 13 for Wednesday Performances in Midtown
 
Golf: The Musical plays another round in Manhattan this summer starting July 13 at Sofia's, the home of Tony 'n' Tina's Wedding, 221 W. 46th Street, in midtown.

The show about America's second-favorite swingin' pastime plays two performances a week, 2:30 PM and 8 PM Wednesdays, through the summer months.

Golf, a quirky revue about the players and people passionate about the game of golf, features book, lyrics and music by Michael Roberts, based on a concept by producer Eric Krebs.

The original production, under the direction of Christopher Scott, debuted in 2003 at The John Houseman Theater, where it played for nearly seven months, amassing 40 previews and 136 performances before ending its run in April 2004.

The musical has played at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine FL, and the opening celebration for The Ryder Cup in suburban Detroit, as well as at another dozen performing arts centers, theatres and country clubs across the country. Most recently, the show enjoyed an extended engagement at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts in Arizona.

A separate production of Golf: The Musical began in recent weeks at The Byre Theatre in St. Andrews, Scotland coinciding with this year's British Open. The foursome of performers appearing in Golf at "The Clubhouse" at Sofia's Restaurant will rotate to include original cast members Joel Blum, Angela Madaline, Trisha Rapier and Christopher Sutton, along with Tom Gamblin, Robin Haynes and Lyn Philistine.

Musical direction will be handled on a rotating basis by composer Michael Roberts, Ken Lundie and Rachel Kaufman.

Tickets are $50 and $30 and can be purchased by calling Theatermania at (212) 352-3101 or online www.golfthemusical.com.
