News   Leo Ash Evens, Stephanie Gibson, Jonathan Monro Count on Fingers and Toes Beginning Oct. 7 Fingers and Toes, a hit Canadian musical, makes its American premiere as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival starting Oct. 7.

Featuring book, music and lyrics by Logan Medland, the musical comedy will continue through Oct. 17 at Urban Stages.

Produced by Medland and Derrick Chua and directed by Matt Lenz, the cast features Leo Ash Evens (the Olivier-Award nominated West End production of West Side Story; Gypsy with Patti LuPone), Stephanie Gibson (Spamalot, Anyone Can Whistle at Encores!) and Jonathan Monro (The Producers' original Toronto cast).

"Tap virtuoso and chronic womanizer 'Toes' Macgrath and relationship-tormented pianist 'Fingers' St. Claire have less than two weeks to create a song and dance show about Love for a big audition with a Broadway producer," according to press notes. "But when triple-threat Molly Molloy joins them to play their ingénue, their plans spiral out of control as real romantic entanglements turn the creative process upside down."

The production team includes Shea Sullivan (choreography), Jovon E. Shuck (stage manager), Alexander Woodward (scenic design), Ryan Park (costumes), Paul Miller (lighting), Rory Dale (sound) and Evan O'Brient (line producer and general manager).

Show times are scheduled for Oct. 7 at 8 PM, Oct. 9 at 4:30 PM, Oct. 12 at 4:30 PM, Oct. 13 at 8 PM, Oct. 15 at 8 PM, Oct. 16 at 1 PM and Oct. 17 at 4:30 PM.
