York's Tune in Time set for 6/20

6/9/2016 12:17pm

The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Dir; Evans Haile, Interim Executive Dir; David McCoy, Chairman of the Board), celebrates Pride Month with the June installment of the game show for musical theater lovers, Tune in Time, presented by Amy Engelhardt and Heather Shields, hosted by Emily McNamara, with Musical Director Nate Buccieri and annoyingly insistent timekeeper Sheila Head, and featuring celebrity guest judges drag performers Marti Gould Cummings, Judy Darling and Brita Filter, on Mon June 20 beginning at 7:30 PM at The York at Saint Peter’s (East 54th St just east of Lexington Ave). The June line-up of songwriters includes James Harvey,  Rebekah M. Allen, Jamie Cowperthwait, Russell Kaplan and the team of Jonathon Lynch and Danielle Trzcinski, who will be split up for the evening. In this “Musical Theater Olympics,” three teams of composers and lyricists who have never worked together are forced to collaborate – and to beat the clock.  Their task?  They must write a song for a new Broadway musical, the title of which is picked from a hatful of audience suggestions – and in a style determined by a spin of the dreaded Genre Wheel – all within 20 minutes!
