JANUARY 7-15, 2017
The York Theatre Company will present the exciting and intriguing new Watergate musical MARK FELT, SUPERSTAR, as part of our New2NY Series this Winter. When former FBI agent Mark Felt revealed in 2005 that he had been Deep Throat, the secret source who helped Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein bring down President Richard Nixon, he ended one of the most intriguing chapters in the history of journalism (and one of the worst in U.S. politics).
In this whimsical, jazzy musical romp, the multi-talented cast of five together portray twenty-four colorful characters in a fast-moving, illuminating take on the shocking political scandal that riveted America and still reverberates today. Part thriller, part tragedy, part comedy, MARK FELT, SUPERSTAR, with book, music and lyrics by Joshua Rosenblum, will have you rethinking everything you thought you knew about Deep Throat and Watergate, all while tapping your feet to some irresistible musical numbers.
