When a Broadway musical turns twenty-five, it’s time to throw a party–and we are! The authors of My Favorite Year are delighted to mark this significant anniversary with two concert performances featuring a revised book, additional new songs, a hilarious new company and some beloved old friends.
With a book by Emmy-winner Joseph Dougherty and score by the Tony-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, My Favorite Year (based on the movie of the same name) premiered at Lincoln Center Theatre’s Vivian Beaumont Theatre in 1992, garnering the Tony Award for Andrea Martin in her Broadway debut.
The musical starred Evan Pappas as a freshman writer on a live 1954 TV comedy show, who must keep his movie-star hero sober enough to perform. The New York Times called it: “Bright, breezy, expert entertainment,” and the AP wrote: “This is a sweet, snappy, altogether beguiling musical comedy with an exceptionally strong book and a stylish, smart score.”
This 25th anniversary concert will be directed by Tony-nominee Dan Knechtges, with music direction by David Holcenberg.
Please join us for a new look at this classic musical comedy.
