Tom Herman will direct the show, set at "the famed Bemelmans Bar," where "veteran bartender Tommy encounters an eclectic, humorous and occasionally infuriating variety of New Yorkers — neurotic barflies, frustrated renters, Sondheim-haters and Sinatra fanatics, ex-con executives, thwarted lovers and even a surprise celebrity or two," according to production notes.
Tony Sportiello/Algonquin Theater Productions presents An Evening at the Carlyle at the Algonquin Theater, 123 E. 24th Street, in Manhattan.
Book, music and lyrics are by Tapper. The cast includes Amanda Gabbard, Dennis Holland, Kelli Maguire, Michael F. McGuirk and Dan Stone. Musical direction is by David Wolfson.
