Bob Martin to Reprise Drowsy Chaperone Role in Hey, Look Me Over!
The original production will kick off the 25th anniversary season of New York City Center's Encores! series.
New York City Center announced that Bob Martin will reprise his Tony-nominated Drowsy Chaperone role of Man in Chair in Hey, Look Me Over!, an original Encores! production that will open the series' 25th anniversary season February 7-11.
Conceived by Jack Viertel, Hey, Look Me Over! is 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, Hey, Look Me Over! 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."
The production will feature Encores! music director Rob Berman and the Encores! Orchestra. The creative team and additional casting will be announced later.
