The York Theatre Company continues its 2016-2017 season with the New York premiere of the new musical Marry Harry, a romantic comedy set in New York’s East Village, about two people on the verge of 30 whose family ties hold a little too tightly – Little Harry, a cook at his father’s failing neighborhood restaurant with dreams of becoming a great Italian chef, and Sherri, who works for her controlling mother’s real estate office but longs for something more.
When their whirlwind romance sets their parents on edge, Harry and Sherri must attempt to find their own ways in life. Marry Harry cooks up ideas of family loyalty, marriage, love, and food with a side of humor, heart, and just the right amount of spice.
The Off-Broadway premiere, directed and choreographed by Bill Castellino, will begin April 25 and is set to play through May 21. The show will officially open May 4 at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s.
The cast of Marry Harry will be made up of Ben Chavez (Bombshell), Morgan Cowling (The Phantom of the Opera), Jesse Manocherian (The Baker’s Wifeat Gallery Players), Claire Saunders (Barrington’s Theatre’s The Pirates of Penzance), Robin Skye (Parade), David Spadora (ValueVille), and Lenny Wolpe (Dear World).
