Written by the Emmy Award-Winning writer of "Cheers" and the West End smash hit production of Sister Act, Cheri Steinkellner, with Musical Arrangements and Additional Music by composer and a lyricist Georgia Stitt. HELLO! MY BABY weaves an updated Tin Pan Alley score into a new-fashioned 19-teens musical-comedy story of teenaged song-pluggers, gangsters, immigrants, socialites, love triangles, gender-swapping, and ukuleles. Irish Bowery song-plugger, Mickey McKee, dreams of writing a cracker-jack million-selling Tin Pan hit to become the next Irving Berlin. But like his hero, Mickey can't read or write a note? until he teams with Nelly Gold, a feisty Jewish sweatshop worker, who happens to be a musical demon. Together they make beautiful music, and create a song Mickey thinks could sell a million, or at least save the Gold sisters' 12TH St. Tavern from dual threats of gangster Johnny Giovanni, and land-baron Stanford J. Tierney, who plans to demolish the Lower East Side block to build high-rises.
The production is presented as part of Rubicon Theatre Company's summer youth program and features a cast of talented teens Directed by Brian McDonald with Musical Direction by Thom Culcasi and Choreography by Carolanne Marano.
