Joel Grey, Bebe Neuwirth, and the Stars of Hey, Look Me Over! Celebrate Closing Night
The Encores! original production ran February 7-11.
The Encores! production of Hey, Look Me Over! closed last night, February 11, at New York City Center and the cast celebrated the show's limited run by walking the red carpet after the curtain fell.
Hey, Look Me Over! was directed by Marc Bruni with musical direction by Rob Berman and choreography by Denis Jones. The production starred Bob Martin, Clyde Alves, Reed Birney, Carolee Carmello, Britney Coleman, Clifton Duncan, Marc Kudisch, Judy Kuhn, Tam Mutu, Bebe Neuwirth, Nancy Opel, Douglas Sills, Alexandra Socha, and Vanessa Williams.
Conceived by Viertel, Hey, Look Me Over! was described as follows: "Catch a glimpse of some of the overtures, opening numbers, grand finales, and other excerpts from the beloved shows that have not yet found a berth on the Encores! stage. In this original production, Man in Chair, a somewhat woebegone musical-theater geek, will lead audiences through these sequences from actual American musicals, as opposed to the fictional sequences he extolled upon in The Drowsy Chaperone."
Among the musicals featured in Hey, Look Me Over! were All American, George M!, Greenwillow, Jamaica, Mack & Mabel, Milk and Honey, Sail Away, and Wildcat.
