Composer/lyricist Robert Rokicki and librettist/lyricist Michael Ruby's pop-rock musical Love, NY, which recently won Curtain Call's American Harmony Prize, will be presented at The Zipper Factory in Manhattan Jan. 26.

The 7 PM concert will boast the talents of Randy Aaron, Kevin Massey, Brynn O'Malley, Vanessa Ray, Krysta Rodriguez and Nick Spangler. Francis Kelly directs.

"Part love letter, part 'dear john' letter to the city we love to hate," Love, NY, according to press notes, "tells the story of five 20-somethings fighting to find their way in the Big Apple, figuring out if what they want in life is what they truly need – all while struggling not to get lost in a sea of 9 million people.

The evening, which will feature the entire score as well as selections of the show's comic libretto, will be music-directed by John Prestianni, who will lead a four-piece band. Alix Claps stage manages.

The one-night-only event is being presented by Kathryn Lumpkin and Lucy Rose of For The Love Productions.

The Zipper Factory is located at 336 West 37th Street in Manhattan. Tickets, priced $15, are available by calling (212) 563-0480 or by visiting www.thezipperfactory.com.
