    Synopsis: 

    Bullets fly and bathtub gin flows in Cole Porter’s 1930 Prohibition musical The New Yorkers, a gleefully amoral celebration of speakeasies, gangsters, society dames, and the great city they love. The show centers on featherbrained socialite Alice Wentworth, whose bootlegger beau leads her on a madcap romp from Park Avenue to Sing Sing and back again. The New Yorkers produced a number of standards—“I Happen to Like New York,” “Love for Sale”—but much of the original material has been lost, making this Encores!’s most ambitious musical reconstruction ever. Don’t miss an evening of sophisticated Depression-era madness.

The view, I must say, is divine.
