Directed by Michael Montel, performances at the Off-Broadway venue continue through Nov. 2.
A Time for Singing features book and lyrics by Gerald Freedman and John Morris and music by Morris; the musical is based on the novel “How Green Was My Valley” by Richard Llewellyn.
The 14-member cast comprises Glenn Seven Allen, Wilson Bridges, Dylan Boyd, Preston Truman Boyd, Madeleine Doherty, Steve French, Ben Gunderson, Gus Halper, Joe Kolinski, Sara Killough, Analisa Leaming, Barbara Marineau, Brian Murray and Gordon Stanley.
A Time for Singing, according to press notes, "examines the lives and loves of the citizens of a South Wales mining town. Virtually unheard since its brief Broadway run during a New York newspaper strike in 1966, the show is a tapestry of choral riches and operatic grandeur."
The York Theatre Company's acclaimed Musicals in Mufti series presents musical theatre gems in a simply staged, book-in-hand concert format. Mufti means “in street clothes, without the trappings of a full production.” A Time for Singing plays 10 performances only at Saint Peter’s (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue). Tickets are priced at $45 and are available online at www.yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s.
