The York Theatre Company, in association with Jim Kierstead, will present the New York premiere of Unexpected Joy beginning April 24.
The musical features a book and lyrics by Bill Russell (Side Show) and music by Janet Hood (Elegies for Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens). The Off-Broadway production will be directed by Amy Anders Corcoran (Escape to Margaritaville) with music direction by Beth Falcone (Les Misérables).
The limited engagement will continue through May 20 at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s (entrance on East 54th Street, east of Lexington Avenue). Casting will be announced at a later date.
Unexpected Joy is the story of three generations of female singers, long-held family tensions, and a week together where change is in the air.
