Joe Mantello directs and Graciela Daniele choreographs the Roundabout Theatre Company production, which features a new book by Richard Greenberg based on the original by John O'Hara.

"Set in Chicago in the late 1930s," Pal Joey, according to show notes, "is the story of Joey Evans, a brash, scheming song and dance man with dreams of owning his own nightclub. Joey abandons his wholesome girlfriend Linda English, to charm a rich, married older woman, Vera Simpson, in the hope that she'll set him up in business."

The cast also features Robert Clohessy, Jenny Fellner, Daniel Marcus, Steven Skybell, Timothy J. Alex, Brian Barry, Kurt Froman, Bahiyah Sayyed Gaines, Lisa Gajda, Anthony Holds, Nadine Isenegger, Mark Morettini, Kathryn Mowat Murphy, Abbey O’Brien, Hayley Podschun, Krista Saab and Eric Sciotto.
