Based on a story by E. Ray Goetz & Peter Arno, The New Yorkers features music & lyrics by Cole Porter, and a book by Herbert Fields.

Synopsis: "Bullets fly and bathtub gin flows in this 1930 Prohibition jape, which is a gleefully amoral celebration of speakeasies, gangsters, society dames and the great city they love. The musical centers on featherbrained socialite Alice Miller, whose bootlegger beau leads her on a madcap romp from Park Avenue to Sing Sing and back again."

John Rando will direct the production, which also features choreography by Chris Bailey and musical direction of The Encores! Orchestra by Rob Berman.
