News Nancy Anderson, Leo Ash Evens and More Cast in York Theatre Company's Ionescopade
Casting has been announced for The York Theatre Company's upcoming production of Ionescopade, a rarely performed "musical vaudeville."

Ionescopade, taken from the works of Eugene Ionesco, features music and lyrics by Mildred Kayden and was originally conceived by Robert Allan Ackerman. The production will begin performances Jan. 23 with an official opening night set for Feb. 2 at The York Theatre at Saint Peter’s.

The cast comprises Nancy Anderson (Kiss Me, Kate), Paul Binotto (Enter Laughing, The Musical), Samuel Cohen (Oh, Calcutta!), David Edwards (The Fantasticks), Leo Ash Evens (West Side Story, London), Susan J. Jacks (Forbidden Broadway) and Tina Stafford (I Married Wyatt Earp).

Bill Castellino will direct and choreograph the limited engagement with music direction by Christopher McGovern, scenic design by James Morgan, costume design by Nicole Wee and lighting design by Mary Jo Dondlinger. 

Ionesco is famous for his plays The Bald Soprano, Rhinoceros, The Chairs and Exit the King (which recently enjoyed a hit revival on Broadway). "Plays, playlets, and poetry by this master of the Absurd transport us into a zany musical vaudeville, where humor is the antidote to the world’s realities," according to the York.

Tickets are $67.50 and are available online at, by calling (212) 935-5820 or in person at the box office at the York Theatre at Saint Peter’s (enter on 54th Street, just east of Lexington).
