Hey, Look Me Over!

Hey, Look Me Over!

New York City Center's popular Encores! series kicks off its 25th Anniversary Season with Hey, Look Me Over! Performances take place on the Mainstage from February 7 to 11, 2018.

Featuring excerpts from a host of musicals gone by that didn't quite make the shortlist for the full Encores! treatment, this musical revue will be shepherded by Man in Chair from The Drowsy Chaperone, Bob Martin. Stay tuned for a lot of overtures, musical scenes, a first act finale, a grand finale, and maybe more. Nothing quite like it has ever been attempted before.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

About Hey, Look Me Over!:

Hey, Look Me Over! has been brewing in the minds of the Encores! team for several years now—but what was the point of a special show without a special occasion? As we narrow each season down to a mere three selections we always end up thinking, “But what about Mack & Mabel? What about Milk and Honey? What about George M? What about High Spirits?” As we reach the age of 25, it seems like a good time to let some of our secret pleasures and most favorite ideas that have not yet found a berth on the Encores! stage make guest appearances.

Conceived by Encores! Artistic Director Jack Viertel

Our Hey, Look Me Over! Review

For 25 years, Encores! at New York City Center has been giving new life to rarely heard American musicals. In celebrating its 25th anniversary, artistic director Jack Viertel and music director Rob Berman created Hey, Look Me Over!: a smorgasbord of said obscure shows.
