Pal Joey on NPR


Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents Stockard Channing (Vera Simpson), Matthew Risch (Joey Evans) and Martha Plimpton (Gladys Bumps) in this new Broadway production. PAL JOEY features a new book by Tony® Award winner Richard Greenberg , based on the original book by John O’Hara, with music direction by Tony® Award winner Paul Gemignani, choreography by Graciela Daniele and directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Joe Mantello at Studio 54 on Broadway.


PAL JOEY opens officially tonight on Broadway at Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street).  This is a limited engagement through February 15th, 2009.


Set in Chicago in the late 1930s, PAL JOEY is the story of Joey Evans, a brash, scheming song and dance man with dreams of owning his own nightclub.   Joey abandons his wholesome girlfriend Linda English, to charm a rich, married older woman, Vera Simpson, in the hope that she’ll set him up in business. 


The Rodgers & Hart score for PAL JOEY includes such classic songs as “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” “I Could Write a Book,” “You Mustn’t Kick It Around,” and “Zip,” among others.   The new production of PAL JOEY will also feature “I’m Talking to My Pal,” a song that had been dropped from the score during its out-of-town tryout.



Tickets are available by phone at (212) 719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Studio 54 Box Office (254 West 54th Street).  Tickets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays range from $36.50 to $121.50.  Tickets on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays range from $36.50 to $126.50. 


Pal Joey plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM.
