Here's to the Third New York is a new one-act musical titled from the varying parts of the city according to E. B. White, who called the third New York the greatest - the city of final destination, the city that is a goal. The piece advocates the dream chaser while taking a rebellious stance on the current state of the art. Especially concerned with the demise of American musical theater, it is a protest against corporate commercialism, conservative politics and the silencing of a generation.
