"Bringing this show to New York feels like a surreal dream, one that I'm still pinching myself over. The gratitude I owe to the immensely talented duo Alex Brightman and Drew Gasparini can't be overstated. Their brilliant book and music paved the way for this wild ride, transforming stumbling blocks into stepping stones. Equally, I'm indebted to my producers Lisa Dozier Shacket and my incredible friend Guy Fieri for their unwavering support. Honestly, I sometimes feel like the luckiest guy in the world. I can't wait for people to join us on this journey, where laughter, entertainment, and pure joy will collide in the heart of New York City. Their combined efforts have made this a moment I'll forever cherish." said Marc Summers
