The York's Acclaimed Musicals in Mufti Series Returns January 26th Celebrating the Centennial of Legendary Librettist/Lyricist ALAN JAY LERNER (Brigadoon, Camelot, Love Life, My Fair Lady).

LOLITA, MY LOVE
FEBRUARY 23 - MARCH 3, 2019
Book and Lyrics by ALAN JAY LERNER
Music by JOHN BARRY
Edited by Erik Haagensen
Directed by EMILY MALTBY
Based on the Novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Based on the 1955 novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita, My Love, which originally closed in Boston in 1971, closely follows the legendary novel: A college professor named Humbert Humbert becomes fascinated by and starts to seduce his landlady's young daughter, Dolores 'Lolita' Haze. The fascination quickly turns into obsession, and soon a whirlwind race across the US begins. For this Mufti presentation, Erik Haagensen (Darling of the Day and The Day Before Spring in Mufti) has edited together a new script from Lerner's assorted drafts, each vastly different from the others. Haagensen said, “Now audiences will have a chance to hear Lolita, My Love on stage and decide for themselves what they think of this unquestionably daring musical that begins as a black comedy and ends in tragedy.” Vladimir Nabokov himself said, “Mr. Lerner is most talented and an excellent classicist. If you have to make a musical of 'Lolita', he is the man to do it.”

11 PERFORMANCES ONLY!
Saturday at 2:30 and 8 p.m. • Sunday, at 2:30 and 7 p.m. (first weekend of each Mufti only) • Wednesday at 7 p.m. • Thursday at 2:30 & 7 p.m. • Friday at 8 p.m.
