Gerard Alessandrini, the famed creator of Forbidden Broadway (the longest-running revue in Off-Broadway history) and the smash spoof Spamilton, comes to The York with his newest creation: Anything Can Happen in the Theater, a collection of the songs of Tony-winning composer and lyricist Maury Yeston. The genius of Yeston's songs—intricate yet emotional, cerebral yet romantic, clever yet unendingly melodic—is coupled with an outstanding cast for an unforgettable evening showcasing the myriad sides of the writer's repertoire. Showstoppers from Nine, Grand Hotel, Titanic, Phantom, and Death Takes a Holiday intertwine with lesser-known entries from the Yeston songbook to show off his immense breadth of style—from the hilarious to the deeply moving.
