New York, New York played its final performance at the St. James Theatre July 30 after opening April 26 and beginning previews March 24. The all-star creative team was led by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman, who directed and choreographed with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, a book by David Thompson and co-written by Sharon Washington, and additional lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It earned nine Tony nominations and one Tony Award (for Beowulf Boritt's set design).

Inspired by the 1977 film written by Earl M. Rauch, New York, New York is set in Manhattan in the days after World War II is over. A collection of artists has dreams as big and diverse as the city itself, among them Francine Evans, a young singer just off the bus from Philly, destined for greatness. At least, until she encounters New York native Jimmy Doyle, a brilliant but disillusioned musician.

Casting was by Jim Carnahan and Jason Thinger, with Johnny Milani serving as production stage manager. Spanish translations and additional text were by Michael León.
