Based on Yevgeny Schwartz’s play The Dragon, the musical is described as such: "After suffering through the siege of Leningrad in WWII, Schwartz felt that the Russian people deserved something better than life under the tyrant Stalin. He couldn’t very well write a play about that and hope to have it produced in Soviet Russia, so he wrote a charming fantasy about a knight who rescues a damsel in distress from a dragon and what happens thereafter."
Performances are Jan. 31 at 8 PM, Feb. 1 at 2:30 PM and 8 PM and Feb. 2 at 2:30 PM and 7:30 PM.
Tickets are priced $45 ($31.50 for York members) and are available online at yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s.
