WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The York Theatre Company presents a one-night only benefit performance of Busker Alley featuring Glenn Close, Jim Dale, Jessica Grové, Simon Jones, Noah Racey, Greg Mills, Krista Rodriguez, Ann Rogers, Michael Lane Trautman and Jeff Williams. Busker Alley is about a busker (one who entertains in public on Londons' famous streets) who falls in love with a much younger woman who longs to be a big star in the theatre and leaves him to follow her dreams. The show is based on the 1938 British motion picture St. Martin's Lane, which was released in America under the title The Sidewalks of London. With music and lyrics by Richard and Robert Sherman (Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and a book by A J Carothers, Busker Alley was originally written in 1969 under the title Piccadilly. The show was rewritten in 1982 and given the title Blow Us A Kiss, then launched in 1994 under its current title. The show played in 16 cities with a planned Broadway debut scheduled for 1995 at the St. James Theatre. However, six weeks prior to its scheduled opening night, Tommy Tune broke his foot during one of the performances in Tampa. Finally, with this benefit performance, Busker Alley makes its New York premiere.
