I Do! I Do! is the story of 50 years in one marriage — an intimate, moving, and hilarious musical comedy by the iconic Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt (authors of The Fantasticks and recipients of the York's 2017 Oscar Hammerstein Award for Lifetime Achievement in Musical Theatre). Written as a star vehicle for theater legends Mary Martin and Robert Preston, the original Broadway production ran more than a year and received seven Tony Award nominations, and the show has been produced all around the country and the world in the years since.
The York's one-night-only intimate reimagination of the Jones and Schmidt classic will be the premiere of a new version of I Do! I Do!: two pianos, five starry couples of Broadway and York alums, and narration by Jones.
I Do! I Do! begins with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day. Their vows behind them, they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. Set to a delightfully tuneful score (including the hit "My Cup Runneth Over"), we watch as they maneuver through wedding night jitters, raise a family, and negotiate midlife crises. This concert version, however, is this story of two soulmates as you've never seen it before: performed by a cast that matures alongside their characters.
