The 92nd Street Y continues the 2009 season of Lyrics & Lyricists with Sunny Side Up, featuring the Lennon/McCartney of their time, DeSylva, Brown & Henderson. Subtitled "Roaring through the Twenties," the show focuses on the megastar songwriting team of Prohibition-Era Tin Pan Alley who turned out hits like "You're the Cream in My Coffee," "Button Up Your Overcoat," "The Best Things in Life Are Free" and the definitive college musical, Good News. Musical theater historian and guest artistic director Robert Kimball has previously created L&L shows on Mack Gordon, Johnny Mercer and Irving Berlin. Charles Osgood returns to the L&L stage as host, and vintage big band Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks provide authentic sizzling-'20s arrangements.
Please note one cast update - Megan Sikora (Curtains, Wonderful Town, Wicked) replaces Meredith Patterson, who has withdrawn due to a scheduling conflict.
