    Synopsis: 

    For 25 years, City Center's Encores! series has been bringing classic American musicals back to life. City Center is where ChicagoWonderful Town, and Finian's Rainbow were reborn — but they were just the beginning. Catch a glimpse at the future of Encores! in this original production, a cavalcade of overtures, opening numbers, grand finales, and other excerpts from beloved shows that Encores! hasn't gotten to...yet. Look for Mack & MabelGreenwillowWildcat, and others of their ilk. The many musical numbers in Hey, Look Me Over! add up to one exciting celebration: Encores! at 25.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Hey, Look Me Over!

    An Anthology of B-List Broadway in ‘Hey, Look Me Over!’

    Jesse Green

    February 8, 2018: Musical theater history, no less than the regular kind, is told by the winners. Triumphs like “Show Boat,” “West Side Story” and “Hamilton” are the works that give you the shape of their times, both as social documents and as cultural products. None of the old musicals sampled in the new Encores! anthology called “Hey, Look Me Over!” made or make that kind of history. Added together, the nine shows didn’t run as long as the original production of “My Fair Lady,” and not one has ever been revived on Broadway. Only one won a Tony Award, and that was for featured actress. If any were to show up on a best-of list, I would suspect family connections.
