Tony winner Bebe Neuwirth and Tony nominees Judy Kuhn, Vanessa Williams, and Carolee Carmello will star in the City Center Encores! production of Hey, Look Me Over! The Encores! original production, which opens the 25th season of the Tony-honored series, will be presented February 7–11, 2018.
To celebrate Encores! at 25, Artistic Director Jack Viertel and music director Rob Berman created Hey, Look Me Over!, a collection of opening numbers, grand finales, and other excerpts from shows that have not yet found a berth on the City Center stage: All American, George M!, Greenwillow, Jamaica, Mack & Mabel, Milk and Honey, Sail Away, and Wildcat.
As previously announced, Bob Martin, nominated for a Tony Award for The Drowsy Chaperone, will return to his role as Man-in-Chair, who turns out to be a longtime Encores! subscriber, ready to lead audiences through this guided tour of musical sequences.
In addition to Martin, the production will star Encores! alums Clyde Alves (George M. Cohan/George M!; Adi/Milk and Honey), Clifton Duncan (Gideon/Greenwillow), Marc Kudisch (Amos/Greenwillow; Phil/Milk and Honey), Kuhn (Elizabeth/All American; Ruth/Milk and Honey), Tam Mutu (Johnny/Sail Away; David/Milk and Honey), Neuwirth (Mimi/Sail Away), Nancy Opel (Gramma/Greenwillow), Alexandra Socha (Mabel/Mack & Mabel), and Williams; and new additions to the Encores! family Reed Birney (Fodorski/All American), Carmello (Wildy/Wildcat), and Broadway newcomer Britney Coleman (Janie/Wildcat; Barbara/Milk and Honey). Casting for the role of Mack will be announced at a later date.
The production will be directed by Marc Bruni with musical direction by Berman and choreography by Denis Jones. Encores! at 25 continues with Grand Hotel, The Musical (March 21-25) and Me and My Girl (May 9–13).
