It is 1946, the war is over, and a resurgent New York is beginning to rebuild. As steel beams swing overhead, a collection of artists has dreams as big and diverse as the city itself. But do these singers, dancers, musicians and makers have what it takes to survive this place, let alone to succeed? If they can make it here, they can make it anywhere.
New York, New York has been written for the stage by Tony Award nominee David Thompson (The Scottsboro Boys, Steel Pier) and co-written by Sharon Washington. The production is directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, The Scottsboro Boys).
