A classic musical comedy with a heart of gold, My Favorite Year features a tuneful score by the incomparable Tony-winning songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and is based on the hit Peter O’Toole film of the same name.
It’s 1954, and Benjy Stone, writers’ assistant on TV’s “King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade,” is assigned the daunting task of babysitting the veteran Hollywood swashbuckler, Alan Swann. The reckless Swann is in town to do a live guest appearance on the show and his antics and alcoholism nearly get Benjy fired. When Benjy is given an unexpected glimpse into Swann’s broken heart, though, he begins to discover a thing or two about life and love.

NOVEMBER 9-17, 2018

A classic musical comedy with a heart of gold, My Favorite Year features a tuneful score by the incomparable Tony-winning songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and is based on the hit Peter O’Toole film of the same name. The show opened on Broadway in 1993, and Andrea Martin won her first Tony Award for her hilarious turn in the original production.

It’s 1954, and Benjy Stone, writers’ assistant on TV’s “King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade,” is assigned the daunting task of babysitting the veteran Hollywood swashbuckler, Alan Swann. The reckless Swann is in town to do a live guest appearance on the show and his antics and alcoholism nearly get Benjy fired. When Benjy is given an unexpected glimpse into Swann’s broken heart, though, he begins to discover a thing or two about life and love.

My Favorite Year has a large cast with many featured characters, making it the perfect choice for a company that is looking to highlight an array of talented actors and also give opportunities to those in the chorus. Filled with juicy comedy roles, the snappy book by Joseph Dougherty will appeal to audiences who are looking for laughs.*
