The York Theatre Company concert production of Hallelujah, Baby! (Concert Production) opened January 28 for its limited run through February 4 at Saint Peter's. This production is the first in the company's winter 2018 Musicals in Mufti series, in which musical theater gems are performed in simply staged, book-in-hand concerts. This season, Musicals in Mufti is celebrating the work of composer Jule Styne, who wrote the music for Hallelujah, Baby!

Stephanie Umoh (Junk) and two-time Tony Award nominee Vivian Reed (Bubbling Brown Sugar) will lead the cast, which will include Jennifer Cody, Randy Donaldson, Bernard Dotson, Latoya Edwards, Michael Thomas Holmes, and Tally Sessions. Gerry McIntyre will direct, with music direction by David Hancock Turner.
