Theatrely Three: NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Our top three reasons why you should not miss out on New York, New York.
From the brainchild of producer and director Holly-Anne Devlin, who brought us Speakeasy at Bond 45 earlier this year, comes New York, New York, the ultimate celebration of the best city on earth. This musical revue is the perfect way to start off your night right here in Times Square at the beloved New York institution: the Brooklyn Diner. As they say in the show, it’s time to put down your pastrami and put your hands together for a wonderful evening of entertainment.
Here’s our Theatrely Three:
- The Food! All true New Yorkers, as much as we might try to avoid Times Square at all costs, know and love the Brooklyn Diner. Delicious food and even better cocktails make way for the best kind of evening. And their spiked milkshakes…**chef’s kiss**
- The Talent! The revue features Jada Temple, Hayley Lampart, Billy Marshall Jr., and Jonathan Mousset who I caught a few years back in Jersey Boys. All four bring their wonderful talents while belting out your favorites. Temple, who wowed us all in Speakeasy, once again stops the show with a stirring rendition of "Home" from The Wiz that simply must be seen..
- New York itself! Devlin and team have created a touching love letter to the city filled with music and dancing that simply puts you in the best mood. From “New York State of Mind” to “Walking On Sunshine” to even “Uptown Funk”, you will be grooving and singing along in your booth while onlookers outside on 43rd Street look in at the party happening inside. And tip: I would brush up on your trivia if you are interested in becoming the new Mayor of New York!
New York, New York plays Fridays and Saturdays from 7-8pm at the Brooklyn Diner on 43rd Street in Times Square. For more information on the Brooklyn Diner, click here.
