Is there anything more fabulous than Palm Springs after the end of the world? For one tight group of gay men, a post-pandemic getaway is the perfect chance to reunite, reclaim their time and replace the gloom with some gossip. But as soon as the drinks start pouring, truths start spilling and this chosen family quickly realizes the world has changed. In To My Girls, this group of friends navigate evolving friendships and set things straight…kind of.

Tickets are on sale now via www.2ST.com.

J2 Spotlight Musical Theater Company (Jim Jimirro, Executive Producer/Co-Founder; Robert W. Schneider, Artistic Director/Co-Founder) today announced the complete company, along with photos from the first day of rehearsal, for the organization’s 2022 production of Frank Lazarus (music) and Dick Vosburgh’s (book and lyrics) A Day in Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine — the first New York City revival of the Tony Award-nominated musical, which will include brand-new additions in collaboration with the show’s creators.  

Directed by Schneider and choreographed by beloved Broadway veteran Deidre Goodwin, the company for A Day in Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine includes Mike Cefalo (Carlo / Frank), David B. Friedman (David / Samovar), Felipe Galganni (Sascha), Caleb James Grochalski (Male Swing / Dance Captain), Stephanie Israelson (Kate / Nina), Lauren Lukacek (Peggy / Pavlenko), Maria Grace Reginaldi (Female Swing), Suzanne Slade (Pricilla / Gina), Marina Vidal (Masha) and Mark William (Constantine / Stephen).

A Day In Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine features two one-act musicals that provide a double feature more hilarious than any presented in Hollywood’s heyday: the first, a salute to the Golden Age of film musicals; the second, a rambunctious Marx Brothers farce. Featuring such songs as “Just Go To The Movies,” “Nelson,” and “Doin’ The Production Code.” A Day in Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine plays February 24 – March 6 at Theater Row (410 West 42nd Street – between 9th and Dyer Avenues).  Single tickets ($55) and discounted 3-show subscription packages are now on sale at j2spotlightnyc.com
