Ahead of New York City Center’s limited engagement of The New Yorkers as part of its Encores! season, Playbill joined the cast for sneak peek performances of “Go Into Your Dance,“ “Where Have You Been“, and “Hot Patata“ from Cole Porter’s 1930 Prohibition musical.
The cast includes Tam Mutu, Scarlett Strallen, Arnie Burton and Kevin Chamberlin. In The New Yorkers, Strallen plays socialite Alice Wentworth, whose bootlegger lover, Al Spanish (Mutu), leads her on the adventure of a lifetime in New York City—from Park Avenue to Sing Sing and back again. John Rando directs.
Rounding out the principal cast are Cyrille Aimée, Clyde Alves, Todd Buonopane, Mylinda Hull, Robyn Hurder, Byron Jennings, Eddie Korbich, Jeffrey Schecter, Tyler Lansing Weaks, and Ruth Williamson.
The ensemble is made up of Matt Bauman, Sam Bolen, Christine DiGiallonardo, Brian Flores, Tessa Grady, Matthew Griffin, Curtis Holland, Evan Kasprzak, Marina Lazzaretto, Kathryn McCreary, Timothy McDevitt, Kristyn Pope, Mariah Reshea Reives, Lindsay Roberts, Brendan Stimson, Cody Williams, and Joseph Wiggan.
The New Yorkers will run March 22–26 at New York City Center. For tickets and more information visit NYCityCenter.org.
