The final musical of the 2022-2023 Broadway season opened on Thursday, April 26th - New York, New York Opening Night at Broadway's St. James Theatre

The new musical, inspired by the 1977 Liza Minnelli and Robert DeNiro MGM film, stars Anna Uzele as up and coming singer Francine Evans and Colton Ryan as musician Jimmy Doyle. The musical is set in 1946 following the war and as the show states - it "is a spectacular show for a singular city." The Susan Stroman directed and choreographed show features a score with music by John Kander and Fred Ebb as well as Pulitzer, Tony, Emmy & Grammy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda. Broadway veterans Clyde Alves, John Clay III, Ben Davis, Janet Decal and Emily Skinner join Angel Sigala and Oliver Prose making their Broadway debuts. The musical features beloved tunes from the film including "But The World Goes Round," "Happy Endings" and the renowned title song.
